Savinelli: Saint Nicholas 2022 (602) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-70579
Trimmer and more lithe than is usual in typically robust Italian pipe design, Savinelli's "602" is a bent Billiard with more of a Danish flair, especially noticeable in the sweeping curves of the silhouette and slight taper of the bowl toward the rim. The proportions between bowl and shank, though, return us to bowl-centric Italian territory, contributing to a bold, sporty, and active character, as appropriate in a sports car as in an armchair.
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
