Savinelli: Foresta Smooth Natural (106) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-69005
While Italian pipes are popularly known for their dramatic, bowl-centric sense of proportions, Savinelli's "106" leans more into the classic English design. Compared to the Italian marque's other straight Billiards, like the "101," "111 KS," "128," and "141 KS," the "106" Billiard is rendered in trimmer style, with more balanced proportions between bowl and shank. It's a wonderful rendition of the classic form, archetypically English and perfect for those interested in the history and quality of Savinelli but prefer a more conservative, reserved size.
An aptly named series, Savinelli's Foresta line — "forest" in Italian — is defined by a deep, green color palette. The custom-cast acrylic stem reveals a rich, conifer hue that leads tastefully into a trio of variegated acrylic accents — displaying a range of green hues from moss and olive to turquoise and lime — separated by twin nickel rings. It's a complex, tantalizing motif, offering nuanced visual texture that's elegant and refined when paired to this example's smooth, honey-blonde finish.-Truett Smith
