Savinelli: Foresta Smooth Natural (606 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73578
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.
An aptly named series, Savinelli's Foresta line — "forest" in Italian — is defined by a deep, green color palette. The custom-cast acrylic stem reveals a rich, conifer hue that leads tastefully into a trio of variegated acrylic accents — displaying a range of green hues from moss and olive to turquoise and lime — separated by twin nickel rings. It's a complex, tantalizing motif, offering nuanced visual texture that's elegant and refined when paired to this example's smooth, honey-blonde finish.-Truett Smith
