Savinelli: Bacco Rusticated Dark Brown (904 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-69415
The "920 KS" and "904 KS" shapes are Savinelli's most striking bent Dublin renditions, posing especially dynamic and angular profiles. Presented here is the "904 KS," which offers a dramatically forward-urging stance, almost Zulu-like in the stem's elegant bend and the gentle flare through the transition into the bowl. Unlike the "920 KS," this piece features a protruding, rounded heel that dips below the shank's line to hint at the Acorn shape. This is one of Savinelli's most popular and distinct shapes, expanding upon the standard English form for a memorable, eye-catching piece all around.
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.-Truett Smith
