Savinelli: Tortuga Rusticated (603) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-75149
Savinelli's "601" and "603" bent Billiard designs are among the Italian marque's smallest renditions, outmatched only by Savinelli's Petite shape versions and the extra-small "609" bent Billiard. The "601" and "603" offer compact lengths and more diminutive bowls than Savinelli's KS and EX size designations, and presented here is the "603." It features essentially the same stummel as the "601," marked by a softly angled transition, upright bowl, and rounded heel, but it's fitted with a saddle stem as opposed to the tapered mouthpiece of the "601."
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-stained rustication 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
