Savinelli: Roma (129) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73082
Well on the shorter side of Savinelli's size spectrum, the "129" is a charmingly compact Billiard. What truly sets it apart from some of the Italian marque's other Billiard shapes is the use of a triangular shank — a signature Savinelli design element. It provides a striking juxtaposition when paired to a tall, poised Billiard bowl, like the one seen here. While it's fairly petite in regards to overall size, there's still plenty of muscularity throughout the proportions of this "129," with the firm, yet rounded lines of the shank providing some subtle sturdiness in hand.
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
