Savinelli: Saint Nicholas 2022 (626) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-71732
While Savinelli features several bent Apples on their standard shape chart, this "626" is their signature, archetypal rendition. It's also the trimmest version offered by the Italian marque, presenting a leaner disposition compared to, say, the "636 KS" and "642" shapes and leaning more into the traditional English style. Defined by a slightly bulging bowl, stretched heel and transition, and lithely bent stem, this iconic "626" is a versatile piece of moderate size and natural in-hand feel — perfect for those interested in an Italian-made pipe but one of more restrained, classic proportions.
Among Savinelli's most collectible series, the Saint Nicholas line has remained a highly anticipated annual release since its debut in 2013, ushering in the holiday season with a distinctly festive color palette. Furthermore, the series often showcases Savinelli's reputation for singular, high-quality acrylic, and this Saint Nicholas 2022 pipe is no exception, representing the line's 10th iteration. Evoking the holiday season's coziness and warmth, this piece is dressed in a dark, smoldering rustication that beautifully complements the custom-cast acrylic stem: It showcasing swirling ruby tones and an iridescent elegance that calls to mind decorative ornaments, while twin nickel rings and a pine-green acrylic accent enhance the aesthetic with a splash of contrasting color.-Truett Smith
