Savinelli: Alligator Red (673 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-72166
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.
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
