Savinelli: Tortuga Smooth (606 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-70011
While many designs on Savinelli's shape chart cater more toward traditional English and French shaping cues when compared to the bold, bowl-centric proportions of other Italian makers, the "606 KS" bent Billiard leans more heavily into that Italian neoclassic style. The bowl is full and robust, dominating the visual weight to leave the shank and stem in more slender, supporting roles. Hearty of chamber, it poses a proud comforting disposition as one of Savinelli's largest bent Billiard renditions, with only the "616 KS" presenting a more muscular profile through the shank. The "606 KS" offers a substantial feel in hand, and the lithe bend and angled shank make for an effortless clench when smoking hands free.
Named after the Spanish word for "tortoise," Savinelli's Tortuga series is undeniably effective in its theme. The striking line is marked by a tortoiseshell-patterned acrylic stem, the mosaic-like visual texture of amber and caramel tones complementing the dark walnut stain of the stummel. Furthering the theme, the Italian marque pairs each briar with an acrylic chamber cap to match the stem — perfect for saving an unfinished bowl for later without fear of spilling ash, or for filling the chamber and slipping it into a jacket pocket so you're always ready for whenever an opportunity to smoke presents itself throughout the day.
Note: While this specific Savinelli pipe has been photographed individually like our other pipes, the third picture used to showcase the Tortuga's chamber cap has not, and the pipe representing its use may or may not be the one offered in this listing.-Truett Smith
