Savinelli: Noce (106) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-72668
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.
Aptly named after the Italian word for "walnut," Savinelli's Noce line (pronounced "no-chay") utilizes a virgin-stained rustication to resemble the craggy texture of its namesake. Like the Italian marque's Spinosa and Cocco series, the Noce offers unstained briar that will darken with a patina over time, the natural medium deepening and darkening as it's smoked. Each line, however, features a slightly different texture and varying stem colors, with the Noce offering a more traditional style of rustication and boasting the most rugged finish of the three, paired to an acrylic stem of swirling caramel hues as well as one of classic jet-black.-Truett Smith
