Savinelli: Tortuga Smooth (504) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-71393
Traditional English shaping fuses with Italian style and design cues in Savinelli's "504" Bulldog. The bowl and heel garner much attention, as expected with Italian neoclassic design, with the bowl rising tall above the beefy shank. The waistline is less portly, though, maintaining a trim, regal profile with mid-set beadlines and graceful tapering above and below. Crisp ridgelines define the shank and stem combination and meet the bowl with affable cheeking in this traditional composition.
Named after the Spanish word for "tortoise," Savinelli's Tortuga series is undeniably effective in its theme. The striking line is marked by a tortoiseshell-patterned acrylic stem, the mosaic-like visual texture of amber and caramel tones complementing the dark walnut stain of the stummel. Furthering the theme, the Italian marque pairs each briar with an acrylic chamber cap to match the stem — perfect for saving an unfinished bowl for later without fear of spilling ash, or for filling the chamber and slipping it into a jacket pocket so you're always ready for whenever an opportunity to smoke presents itself throughout the day.
Note: While this specific Savinelli pipe has been photographed individually like our other pipes, the third picture used to showcase the Tortuga's chamber cap has not, and the pipe representing its use may or may not be the one offered in this listing.- Chuck Stanion
