Savinelli: Bacco Smooth Natural (602) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68939
Trimmer and more lithe than is usual in typically robust Italian pipe design, Savinelli's "602" is a bent Billiard with more of a Danish flair, especially noticeable in the sweeping curves of the silhouette and slight taper of the bowl toward the rim. The proportions between bowl and shank, though, return us to bowl-centric Italian territory, contributing to a bold, sporty, and active character, as appropriate in a sports car as in an armchair.
Savinelli's Bacco series pays tribute to Bacchus, Roman god of the grape harvest, wine, ritual madness, fertility, theater, and just about all things associated with raucous parties. In Roman culture, wine and the grapes that produce it were viewed not only as gifts from the god, but also as symbolic representations of him on Earth. In Savinelli's homage to the deity and all Italian red wines, a shimmering Bordeaux-colored mouthpiece is used to evoke the appearance of the historic imbibement. The vibrant mouthpiece is paired to either a smooth, natural stain or a rugged, burgundy-hued rustication, with bright metal bands accenting the stem base.- Chuck Stanion
