Savinelli: Roma (812) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-72901
Exemplifying Savinelli's creative approach to classic shapes, the "812" is, in essence, a bent Canadian — interpreting the English shape chart standard through a more dramatic, whimsical lens. The stummel remains rooted in tradition, with the elongated, oval shank giving way to an upright Billiard bowl. By subtly bending the abbreviated stem, though, Savinelli has effectively accentuated the firm heel at the fore and given the transition a more angled appearance in profile. Furthermore, the downturned mouthpiece balances out the long form for a more comfortable clench and accents the sleekness of the shank through its elegant curve.
It's only fitting that one of Italy's most historic and esteemed pipe manufacturers would devote a line to one of the country's most celebrated cities: Rome. From Antiquity and empire to Renaissance and cultural center, the Italian capital tells the story of millennia through its architecture, statues, piazzas, and fountains. Savinelli's Roma series pays tribute to this history, presenting a dark rustication, accented with a trim, brass ring at the base of the vulcanite stem. The lighter-stained, smooth-polished rim echoes that elegant contrast, and the mouthpiece trades the Italian marque's usual coat of arms logo for one emblazoned with an "R," distinguishing the Rome-inspired line.-Truett Smith
