Savinelli: Saint Nicholas 2022 (606 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-70348
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.
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
