Savinelli: Avorio Smooth Bordeaux (606 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73137
While many designs on Savinelli's shape chart cater more toward traditional English and French shaping cues when compared to the bold, bowl-centric proportions of other Italian makers, the "606 KS" bent Billiard leans more heavily into that Italian neoclassic style. The bowl is full and robust, dominating the visual weight to leave the shank and stem in more slender, supporting roles. Hearty of chamber, it poses a proud comforting disposition as one of Savinelli's largest bent Billiard renditions, with only the "616 KS" presenting a more muscular profile through the shank. The "606 KS" offers a substantial feel in hand, and the lithe bend and angled shank make for an effortless clench when smoking hands-free.
Savinelli's Avorio finish was introduced in 2023, and its name is a direct reference to its appearance: Avorio translates into English as "ivory" from Italian. Referring specifically to their stems, Avorio pipes feature custom-cast stems of ivory-white acrylic striated with slightly darker hues, immediately reminiscent of their namesake and evocative of ivory-stemmed pipes of yesteryear. The Avorio line comprises both smooth and rusticated finishes, with the smooth version showcasing a deep, warm, and glossy Bordeaux stain, while the rustication pairs its craggy texture to a darker, chestnut-toned hue.-Truett Smith
