Savinelli: Bamboo Rusticated Natural (106) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-71974
While Italian pipes are popularly known for their dramatic, bowl-centric sense of proportions, Savinelli's "106" leans more into the classic English design. Compared to the Italian marque's other straight Billiards, like the "101," "111 KS," "128," and "141 KS," the "106" Billiard is rendered in trimmer style, with more balanced proportions between bowl and shank. It's a wonderful rendition of the classic form, archetypically English and perfect for those interested in the history and quality of Savinelli but prefer a more conservative, reserved size.
Virgin-finished pipes are beloved by pipe smokers for their natural color palette and patinating ability, the briar gradually darkening with character as the pipe is smoked. Savinelli is no stranger to such a presentation, offering a number of virgin-finished pieces in the Italian marque's Riccio, Cocco, Ghibli, Noce, and Spinosa lines, all with distinct textures and color palettes. Joining that selection is the Bamboo series, presenting pipes in a unique, rusticated texture that emulates the look of the line's namesake. A caramel-hued acrylic mouthpiece completes the aesthetic, with a pale-green accent ring modeled after the color of bamboo's leaves.-Truett Smith
