Savinelli: Tortuga Smooth (127) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-70015
The "127" Billiard design from Savinelli is, essentially, a saddle-stemmed rendition of the Italian marque's "128" version. As such, it's one of their larger interpretations, and the saddle stem accentuates the stummel's presence even more. The tall bowl commands much of the profile's visual weight, and the "127" is notably longer and more muscular compared to Savinelli's "106" and "104" Billiards, while also being slightly stouter than their trim "107" design. Like the "128," this pipe is an ideal choice for fans of classic shapes but who desire a piece with a bit more substance all around and who favor saddle stems over tapered varieties.
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
