Savinelli: Morellina Rusticated Black (128) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-71053
Savinelli's "128" Billiard is one of the marque's larger interpretations of the shape chart standard, the tall bowl commanding much of the profile's visual weight — a signature approach within Italian pipe making that's also a key aspect of Savinelli's immediately recognizable style. The bowl's prominence is further accentuated through the gradual taper of the arrow straight shank-and-stem combination. The "128" is notably longer and more muscular compared to the firm's "106" and "104" Billiards, while also being slightly stouter than their trim "107" design. This is an ideal choice for fans of classic shapes but who desire a pipe with a bit more substance all around.
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
