Savinelli: Roma Lucite (412 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-71907
Like the "401" Savinelli's "412 KS" is a fairly classic rendition of the traditional Dublin shape, the form arrow straight through the shank and stem, with the upright bowl flaring conservatively above. Where the two designs differ is in their sizes: The "412 KS," seen here, is considerably more robust and offers a deeper chamber. For fans of the Dublin who appreciate hearty substance, the "412 KS" is the perfect choice, while those who prefer a more svelte style will enjoy the "401."
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
