Savinelli: Ginger's Favorite Smooth (626) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-72766
While Savinelli features several bent Apples on their standard shape chart, this "626" is their signature, archetypal rendition. It's also the trimmest version offered by the Italian marque, presenting a leaner disposition compared to, say, the "636 KS" and "642" shapes and leaning more into the traditional English style. Defined by a slightly bulging bowl, stretched heel and transition, and lithely bent stem, this iconic "626" is a versatile piece of moderate size and natural in-hand feel — perfect for those interested in an Italian-made pipe but one of more restrained, classic proportions.
The Favorites line from Savinelli presents long-stemmed designs inspired by those smoked by Bing Crosby, Ginger Rogers, and Clark Gable. Ginger's Favorite is presented here, and unlike Bing's and Clark's versions, which present a singular shape, Ginger's offers two iterations: the "104" Billiard and "626" bent Apple. Both are paired to a long, demi-Churchwarden stem of horn-patterned acrylic — this particular one wearing a smooth, smoky finish as a handsome complement. It's a fitting celebration of the famed actress, dancer, and singer's career and is the perfect pipe for those interested in the lithe posture, cool-smoking qualities of a Churchwarden but prefer a more manageable overall length.-Truett Smith
