Savinelli: Oscar Tiger Smooth (101) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-70990
Savinelli's "101" Billiard is a muscular take on the shape chart standard — undeniably Italian in its execution, evidenced by the robust bowl and firm heel underneath. Such shaping cues call to mind the marque's "141 KS" Billiard, only here, the bowl of the "101" has a much stouter appearance due to the shank being considerably thicker, continuing the hearty precedent set by the bowl. This piece is also one of the shortest Billiards offered by the Italian firm, making it a substantial pipe that houses a good bit of chamber, while still being easily manageable and relatively compact.
The various iterations of the Oscar series from Savinelli are united by their pairing of traditional finishes with vibrant acrylic stems that feature the line's signature star logo. While the Oscar Lucite version presents only one aesthetic, the Oscar Tiger offers two distinct finishes, a dark rustication and smooth, auburn stain. Most defining of the Oscar Tiger line, though, is the striped acrylic stem, clearly calling to mind the fur of the series' namesake. The lighter tones of the stem echo the vibrant hue of the stummel in this smooth rendition, complemented further by a trim brass band.-Truett Smith
