Savinelli: Oliva Rusticated Natural (606 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73233
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.
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
