Savinelli: Mega Rusticated (611) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-74043
A bold bent Dublin of hearty proportions, Savinelli's "611 KS" offers a substantial, three-quarter bent stem and shank combination for easy clenching and comfortable balance. The bowl flares softly from the firm Italian heel in almost Billiard fashion, but with just enough expansion to know it's a Dublin. With a high-set transition reaching halfway up the bowl, it's a Dublin meant for long, comfortable smokes. This particular "611" rendition, however, is among Savinelli's largest interpretations as part of the Mega series, offering considerable substance through the shank and heel and a massive bowl for a well-insulated chamber.
Many pipe makers utilize certain methods for distinguishing the sizes of their pipes: For example, Dunhill has their six Group sizes, Ashton has their "X" stamps, and Castello marks its largest pipes with "G" designations. For Savinelli's standard array of pipes, the Italian marque uses "KS" and "EX" stamps — "KS" standing for "King Size" and "EX" for "Extra Large." EX pipes increase the overall size of their KS counterparts, but there is one Savinelli line whose shape are even larger than EX variations: the Mega series. While these pipes aren't distinguished by a size stamp, they're among the Italian marque's largest across their regular-production lineup, boasting hearty proportions and immense chamber volume. This Mega example makes good use of that added surface area, wearing a crisp, red-tinged rustication for welcome texture and accented by a trim brass band.- Chuck Stanion
