Savinelli: Siena (626) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-74331
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.
Savinelli's Siena line, named for the city in Tuscany, is one of the marque's most traditionally inclined and reserved series, finishing stummels in a warm, mahogany stain and pairing them to jet-black acrylic mouthpieces. Fitting its namesake, the line's stain resembles the red brick of Siena's Piazza del Campo, the city's main square, which features the Torre del Mangia, the second tallest medieval tower in Italy. Unlike the majority of Savinelli pipes that are drilled to accommodate 6mm filters, the Siena is composed of pieces that accept 9mm balsa filters. Aesthetically, it's an elegantly understated presentation and is an ideal choice for pipe smokers who prefer 9mm filters or, simply, a wider airway.-Truett Smith
