Savinelli: Saint Nicholas 2022 (315 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-70315
Savinelli's interpretation of the Prince, the "315 KS" provides all the plump, in-hand comfort of the shape, with more emphasis placed on the heel than classic English versions. The heel extends forward for a broader base and lower center of gravity, while the moderately sized shank leads to a willowy, tapered stem, and the vertically compressed bowl presents a lower profile in silhouette. It maintains a staunch profile, making for a bolder rendition compared to traditional Anglo-French interpretations.
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.- Chuck Stanion
