Savinelli: Avorio Smooth Bordeaux (111 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73422
A classically inclined, deep-chambered rendition of the timeless Billiard, Savinelli's "111 KS" is a bold take on the shape chart standard and is proudly Italian in its execution. The towering bowl commands much of the shape's visual weight, paired to a comparatively slimmer, round shank and tapered mouthpiece. The "111 KS" is closely related to the marque's "104" Billiard, with the primary difference being that this "111 KS" is slightly longer and contains more muscular proportions throughout. Such features are ideal for fans of traditional pipe designs who also prefer an arrangement that offers more chamber depth for longer smokes and a substantial presence in hand.
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
