Savinelli: Ginger's Favorite Rusticated (104) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68962
Savinelli's "104" shape designation corresponds to a Billiard design that showcases the Italian pipe making tradition's approach to classic English and French shapes. The basic Billiard form is maintained in the rigid, upright bowl; however, the proportions have been slightly altered as the shank and stem are a touch more slender and the bowl a tad taller. It makes for a dramatic visual effect and draws more attention to the bowl, while still preserving the shape's streamlined look in profile. The "104" also presents a trimmer alternative to the firm's more robustly proportioned Billiards, such as the "101" and "141 KS," while not sacrificing anything in terms of chamber depth.
The Favorites line from Savinelli presents long-stemmed designs inspired by those smoked by Bing Crosby, Ginger Rogers, and Clark Gable. Ginger's Favorite is presented here, and unlike Bing's and Clark's versions, which present a singular shape, Ginger's offers two iterations: the "104" Billiard and "626" bent Apple. Both are paired to a long, demi-Churchwarden stem of horn-patterned acrylic — this particular one wearing a dark, rusticated finish for handsome contrast. It's a fitting celebration of the famed actress, dancer, and singer's career and is the perfect pipe for those interested in the lithe posture, cool-smoking qualities of a Churchwarden but prefer a more manageable overall length.-Truett Smith
