Savinelli: Alligator Red (606 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-71937
While many designs on Savinelli's shape chart cater more toward traditional English and French shaping cues when compared to the bold, bowl-centric proportions of other Italian makers, the "606 KS" bent Billiard leans more heavily into that Italian neoclassic style. The bowl is full and robust, dominating the visual weight to leave the shank and stem in more slender, supporting roles. Hearty of chamber, it poses a proud comforting disposition as one of Savinelli's largest bent Billiard renditions, with only the "616 KS" presenting a more muscular profile through the shank. The "606 KS" offers a substantial feel in hand, and the lithe bend and angled shank make for an effortless clench when smoking hands free.
Featuring a mix of smooth-polished panels and deep, rusticated channels, Savinelli's Alligator series presents a finish that readily evokes the scaly, bumpy hide of its namesake texturally and visually. The stummel's vibrant stain further accentuates its eye catching appeal while the trim brass band provides some subtle, refined contrast to the bowl's rugged disposition. For a playful accenting touch, the stem of each pipe features the stenciled silhouette of an alligator patiently awaiting its next meal — or bowl, rather.-Truett Smith
