Savinelli: Morellina Rusticated Black (114 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-70479
Savinelli boasts a rather robust shape chart, not to mean that all of their shapes are robust, but the diversity of shapes is grand. The Italian marque has an especially wide array of straight Billiard designs, all differing in their size and proportions. The "114 KS" is one of only two saddle-stemmed varieties, joining the "110," and it sits right in the middle of Savinelli's size spectrum: It's a touch larger than the "104" and "106" but exhibits a trimmer style than, say, the "101," more similar to the "111 KS." Lovers of English classics will appreciate the traditional shaping and relative proportions but with a slightly larger bowl to ensure a comforting in-hand feel and plenty of chamber space.
The title of Savinelli's Morellina series hints at its color palette: a deep walnut brown indicative of the line's characteristic stem. This rusticated example reveals an alluring, dusky motif, and features a custom-cast acrylic stem of swirling cream and mocha hues. Such a stem emulates the look of traditional cumberland but with lighter tones and a more fluid pattern, adding intrigue and character to the overall theme. It's further accented by a trim nickel ring, completing the distinctive aesthetic but with an overall subdued demeanor — perfect for those inclined toward more traditional motifs but who still desire a pipe of individual style.-Truett Smith
