Savinelli: Saint Nicholas 2022 (106) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-70129
While Italian pipes are popularly known for their dramatic, bowl-centric sense of proportions, Savinelli's "106" leans more into the classic English design. Compared to the Italian marque's other straight Billiards, like the "101," "111 KS," "128," and "141 KS," the "106" Billiard is rendered in trimmer style, with more balanced proportions between bowl and shank. It's a wonderful rendition of the classic form, archetypically English and perfect for those interested in the history and quality of Savinelli but prefer a more conservative, reserved size.
Among Savinelli's most collectible series, the Saint Nicholas line has remained a highly anticipated annual release since its debut in 2013, ushering in the holiday season with a distinctly festive color palette. Furthermore, the series often showcases Savinelli's reputation for singular, high-quality acrylic, and this Saint Nicholas 2022 pipe is no exception, representing the line's 10th iteration. Evoking the holiday season's coziness and warmth, this piece is dressed in a dark, smoldering rustication that beautifully complements the custom-cast acrylic stem: It showcasing swirling ruby tones and an iridescent elegance that calls to mind decorative ornaments, while twin nickel rings and a pine-green acrylic accent enhance the aesthetic with a splash of contrasting color.-Truett Smith
