Savinelli: Roma Lucite (316 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-71509
The primary feature of a Pot is its broad tobacco chamber, and the Savinelli "316 KS" certainly fulfills that purpose. Particularly wide at the top, the chamber is conical, aligning with the shaping of the bowl, while the lithe shank-and-stem combination adds tasteful elegance through its curve. It's a remarkably organic interpretation, offering a sweeping heel and softly rounded rim, and all with a subtle forward momentum to keep things lively.
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 Lucite series pays tribute to this history, presenting a dark rustication, accented with a trim, brass ring at the base of the acrylic 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. Unlike the original Roma series, however, the Roma Lucite here trades the jet-black vulcanite stem for an acrylic one of shimmering satin hues, catering to those who prefer a more eye-catching aesthetic.- Chuck Stanion
