Savinelli: Paloma Rusticated Black (645 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73215
Savinelli's "645 KS" is a wide, stout take on the bent Brandy, the bowl prioritizing breadth over height, yet still boasting a respectably deep chamber within. The bowl wears its waistline low before subtly tapering up toward the rim, while the transition offers ample room for the thumb to rest. Unlike the Italian marque's "628" bent Brandy, the "645 KS" is a low-slung take on the classic shape with the bowl more Apple-esque in its curvature, and it displays a greater degree of bend compared to the "144 KS." It's an ideal choice for pipe smokers who prefer robust, substantial designs that also remain balanced and lightweight enough to be clenched comfortably in the jaw.
Introduced in 2023, Savinelli's Paloma series is named after the Italian word for "dove" and is characterized by two finishes offered across six shapes. The smooth offerings are dressed in a rich chestnut stain, highlighting fine grain while contrasting elegantly with the Paloma's multicolored stem of custom-cast, high-quality acrylic, while the rusticated options are stained a deep black hue, with a wealth of crisp texture around the stummel. The cream, caramel, and mahogany tones of the stem offer an elegant complement to the stummel — here dressed in the Paloma's rusticated finish.-Truett Smith
