Savinelli: Oceano Rusticated (106) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-70644
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.
While the dimpled, chestnut-stained rustication of Savinelli's Oceano series remains quite classic and traditional, the line's stem clearly hints at its inspiration. Fashioned from custom-made acrylic, the mouthpiece displays a swirling pattern of vivid sapphire and cream hues, resembling the foaming crests of ocean waves. The base, then, is marked by a steady ring of white, demarcating the vibrant colors of the stem from the stummel's darker shade.-Truett Smith
