Savinelli: Alligator Brown (622 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68971
Compared to other Italian pipe makers, Savinelli fashions shapes that hew closer to traditional English and French standards of proportions. While much of Italian pipe design opts for dramatic and stylized renditions of classic shapes — with bowls that are starkly taller and broader and shanks that are comparatively more slender — Savinelli presents more balanced dimensions in their pipes, leaning slightly toward this Italian design cue but still remaining quite true to tradition. This "622 KS" bent Pot is an excellent example of Savinelli's devotion to classic shaping and is perhaps the most English-styled shape on the Italian marque's chart. The proportions between the stout shank and hearty bowl are balanced and consistent, neither dominating the visual weight, and it remains a comfortable piece when clenched thanks to the stem's downward turn and angle of the transition — offering a deeper bend than Savinelli's other bent Pots, the "121 KS" and "122" designs.
Featuring a mix of smooth-polished panels and deep, rusticated channels, Savinelli's Alligator series presents a finish that readily evokes the scaly, bumpy hide of its namesake texturally and visually. The stummel's vibrant stain further accentuates its eye catching appeal while the trim brass band provides some subtle, refined contrast to the bowl's rugged disposition. For a playful accenting touch, the stem of each pipe features the stenciled silhouette of an alligator patiently awaiting its next meal — or bowl, rather.-Truett Smith
