Savinelli: Arancia Smooth Brown (173) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73238
The "173" is one of Savinelli's more unique shapes, hybridizing characteristic elements of other designs. In silhouette, the profile is a fairly straightforward Apple, perhaps a touch taller than would be considered standard and with a very slight bend to the stem, but upon closer examination the pipe's distinguishing qualities become more apparent. The shank is actually a Reuleaux triangle in cross section, still rounded but with defining ridgelines for a paneled-like motif, and such a cue matches the shank of the Italian marque's "673 KS" bent Bulldog. Following the Bulldog similarities, the bowl of the "173" sometimes features crisp beadlines just above the waist in some iterations, yet all versions always remain continually rounded and devoid of the Bulldog's typically sudden taper toward the rim.
Introduced in 2023, the Arancia series is one of Savinelli's most vibrant, with an especially impressive stem that matches the line's citrus motif. Meaning "orange" in Italian, arancia is the perfect moniker for this series: The custom-cast acrylic stem displays a vivid arrangement of mottled orange hues contrasted by a green accent band, reminiscent of an orange topped with a leaf. The stummel is dressed in a smooth finish and vibrant stain, complementing the stem's green and orange hues and providing plenty of rich definition to the grain. Adding to this series' impressive list of features, the chamber has been coated with hints of orange essence, similar to the touch of honey added to Savinelli's Miele pipes.-Truett Smith
