Savinelli: Roma Lucite (673 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-71617
The "673 KS" shape is Savinelli's take on the iconic bent Bulldog design. While the overall profile remains true to the traditional English shape-chart standard — marked by a paneled shank and tapered rim — the Italian marque has imbued it with their own stylized aesthetic. Most notably, the shank is triangular instead of diamond in cross section, a signature Savinelli shaping cue, and the bowl features some added plumpness about the base before tapering slightly toward the rim above the waist. It makes for a distinctly recognizable Savinelli pipe, replete with a substantial voluptuousness in hand, while still maintaining a strong degree of classic appeal.
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.-Truett Smith
