Savinelli: Dry System Rusticated (614) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73948
Savinelli's "614" is the Italian marque's most deeply bent shape, resembling the classic Oom Paul. The shank curls upward, almost vertically, making for a compact length that hangs comfortably from the jaw, and the stretched heel and rounded Billiard bowl sit naturally in hand. Aligning more with traditional English proportions, the shank and transition are on the stouter end compared to some of Savinelli's Italian neoclassic shapes — an excellent choice for those interested in an Italian-made, hands-free smoker but desire a form of more English sensibilities.
Designed to promote a dry, cool smoking experience, pipes within Savinelli's Dry System series feature wells inside the shank that extend past the draft hole to catch unwanted condensation. The stems also feature rounded buttons that spread the smoke across the palate for more consistent and balanced flavor. While other makers offer pipes of similar construction, few are engineered to allow filters; however, the Dry System still accommodates Savinelli's 6mm balsa filters. Fitted with a flashy mount, this particular example wears a dark-stained rustication for subtle texture and a traditional presentation.-Truett Smith
