Savinelli: Oceano Rusticated (673 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73968
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.
While the dimpled, chestnut-stained rustication of Savinelli's Oceano series remains quite classic and traditional, the line's stem clearly hints at its inspiration. Fashioned from custom-made acrylic, the mouthpiece displays a swirling pattern of vivid sapphire and cream hues, resembling the foaming crests of ocean waves. The base, then, is marked by a steady ring of white, demarcating the vibrant colors of the stem from the stummel's darker shade.-Truett Smith
