Savinelli: Marte Smooth (626) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73980
While Savinelli features several bent Apples on their standard shape chart, this "626" is their signature, archetypal rendition. It's also the trimmest version offered by the Italian marque, presenting a leaner disposition compared to, say, the "636 KS" and "642" shapes and leaning more into the traditional English style. Defined by a slightly bulging bowl, stretched heel and transition, and lithely bent stem, this iconic "626" is a versatile piece of moderate size and natural in-hand feel — perfect for those interested in an Italian-made pipe but one of more restrained, classic proportions.
In Roman and, by default, Greek mythology, Mars (Ares in Greek) was considered the god of war, second of importance in the pantheon only to Jupiter (Zeus), his father. From his Roman moniker, we derive the name for the Red Planet, as well as the month of March — during which ancient Rome celebrated many of the deity's festivals. Inspired by this Roman and Italian heritage, Savinelli here presents the Marte line, meaning "Mars" in Italian. Characterized by a red-tinged, auburn stain and trio of copper and nickel accents to complement, the aesthetic draws inspiration from myths of old and offers a palette that echoes the iconic soil of the namesake planet.-Truett Smith
