Savinelli: Avorio Smooth Bordeaux (626) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73140
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.
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
