Savinelli: Tortuga Smooth (804 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-74751
Savinelli's "804 KS" Canadian is an impressively lengthy interpretation of the classic English shape — combining a soaring bowl to an extended oval shank, then paired to a comparatively shorter, tapered stem. The sides of the shank are accented by a pair of firm yet understated ridgelines that help give the shape a sturdy presence in hand while subtly contributing some extra textural diversity to the composition. The tall bowl caters well to the Italian marque's signature neoclassic approach to traditional shapes as the bowl garners much of the overall visual focus in relation to the shank and stem. This "804 KS" design is also notably a larger, bolder sibling to Savinelli's "802" Canadian, offering a more substantial take on the classic shape.
Named after the Spanish word for "tortoise," Savinelli's Tortuga series is undeniably effective in its theme. The striking line is marked by a tortoiseshell-patterned acrylic stem, the mosaic-like visual texture of amber and caramel tones complementing the dark walnut stain of the stummel. Furthering the theme, the Italian marque pairs each briar with an acrylic chamber cap to match the stem — perfect for saving an unfinished bowl for later without fear of spilling ash, or for filling the chamber and slipping it into a jacket pocket so you're always ready for whenever an opportunity to smoke presents itself throughout the day.
Note: While this specific Savinelli pipe has been photographed individually like our other pipes, the third picture used to showcase the Tortuga's chamber cap has not, and the pipe representing its use may or may not be the one offered in this listing.-Truett Smith
