Savinelli: Foresta Rusticated Brown (616 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-69369
One of the most full-bodied examples of Savinelli's approach to the bent Billiard, the "616 KS" dramatizes the standard form with especially robust proportions. It features a hearty bowl and generous chamber with an equally plump shank and stem. It's noticeably more muscular and deep-chambered compared to the marque's other bent Billiards like the "606 KS," "670 KS," "602," and "603" designs. The "616 KS" offers plenty of reinforcing briar at its chamber walls, transition, and shank, filling the palm with ease and exemplifying what it means to be considered an iconic Italian bent Billiard.
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 rugged and naturalistic to complement this example's chestnut rustication.-Truett Smith
