Savinelli: Dolomiti Smooth (673 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73492
The "673 KS" shape is Savinelli's take on the iconic bent Bulldog design. While the overall profile remains true to the traditional English shape chart standard — marked by a paneled shank and tapered rim — the Italian marque has imbued it with their own stylized aesthetic. Most notably, the shank is triangular instead of diamond in cross section, a signature Savinelli shaping cue, and the bowl features some added plumpness about the base before tapering slightly toward the rim above the waist. It makes for a distinctly recognizable Savinelli pipe, replete with a substantial voluptuousness in hand, while still maintaining a strong degree of classic appeal.
Inspired by the iconic Dolomite mountain range in northeastern Italy, as well as the sedimentary carbonate rock of the same name found there and in various historic buildings throughout Rome, Savinelli's Dolomiti series is fittingly characterized by its earthy brown color palette. This particular example wears a glossy, smooth, auburn finish, accented by a small beige acrylic band, as well as a matching acrylic mouthpiece of variegated caramel and cream tones. Such an aesthetic calls to mind the appearance of the mountains near dusk when the last rays of sunlight lend the pale grey stone a darker, richer, and warmer color.-Truett Smith
