Savinelli: Miele (128) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-71498
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.
Meaning "honey" in Italian, Savinelli's Miele line recalls its namesake through the use of a golden color palette and crystalline visual texture — the stummel wearing a vivid, honey-blonde stain and being paired to an acrylic stem that resembles the mosaic-like structure of honeycomb. Furthermore, the chamber has been treated with a honey extract, promoting a sweet-smoking break-in period, and it all comes complete with a wooden tamper in the shape of a honey dipper.-Truett Smith
