Savinelli: Tigre Rusticated Black (101) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-69993
Savinelli's "101" Billiard is a muscular take on the shape chart standard — undeniably Italian in its execution, evidenced by the robust bowl and firm heel underneath. Such shaping cues call to mind the marque's "141 KS" Billiard, only here, the bowl of the "101" has a much stouter appearance due to the shank being considerably thicker, continuing the hearty precedent set by the bowl. This piece is also one of the shortest Billiards offered by the Italian firm, making it a substantial pipe that houses a good bit of chamber, while still being easily manageable and relatively compact.
Inspired by the restrained ferocity and quiet power of a tiger, Savinelli's Tigre series showcases nine classic Savinelli shapes, all united by exotic, bengal-patterned acrylic stems — custom cast specifically for this series. The black, low-profile rustication here resembles the sly prowess of the line's namesake feline, while the vibrant hues of the mouthpiece are a limber, pouncing burst of accenting color. Eye-catching without becoming ostentatious, this piece exemplifies Savinelli's deft fusion of modern flair and timeless elegance, resulting in an attractive pipe that carries a statement of confidence.-Truett Smith
