Savinelli: Oliva Rusticated Natural (106) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73221
While Italian pipes are popularly known for their dramatic, bowl-centric sense of proportions, Savinelli's "106" leans more into the classic English design. Compared to the Italian marque's other straight Billiards, like the "101," "111 KS," "128," and "141 KS," the "106" Billiard is rendered in trimmer style, with more balanced proportions between bowl and shank. It's a wonderful rendition of the classic form, archetypically English and perfect for those interested in the history and quality of Savinelli but prefer a more conservative, reserved size.
Introduced in 2023, Savinelli's Oliva series is a fetching showcase of the Italian firm's aptitude with natural finishes and custom-cast, proprietary acrylic stems and a commemoration of Italy's olive tradition. Each pipe in the Oliva series features an unstained, virgin stummel and a striated rustication across the bowl for a bark-like texture evocative of the olive tree. Additionally, each pipe is topped by a pale, olive-green acrylic mouthpiece, which adds a touch of complementary color to the entire composition and furthers the line's distinctive theme.-Truett Smith
