Savinelli: Roma (114 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-70858
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.
It's only fitting that one of Italy's most historic and esteemed pipe manufacturers would devote a line to one of the country's most celebrated cities: Rome. From Antiquity and empire to Renaissance and cultural center, the Italian capital tells the story of millennia through its architecture, statues, piazzas, and fountains. Savinelli's Roma series pays tribute to this history, presenting a dark rustication, accented with a trim, brass ring at the base of the vulcanite stem. The lighter-stained, smooth-polished rim echoes that elegant contrast, and the mouthpiece trades the Italian marque's usual coat of arms logo for one emblazoned with an "R," distinguishing the Rome-inspired line.-Truett Smith
