Savinelli: Arlecchino Rusticated Black (111 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-75559
A classically inclined, deep-chambered rendition of the timeless Billiard, Savinelli's "111 KS" is a bold take on the shape chart standard and is proudly Italian in its execution. The towering bowl commands much of the shape's visual weight, paired to a comparatively slimmer, round shank and tapered mouthpiece. The "111 KS" is closely related to the marque's "104" Billiard, with the primary difference being that this "111 KS" is slightly longer and contains more muscular proportions throughout. Such features are ideal for fans of traditional pipe designs who also prefer an arrangement that offers more chamber depth for longer smokes and a substantial presence in hand.
In Italian, arlecchino translates to "harlequin" and refers to a specific dramatic role common in commedia dell'arte, an early form of professional theater originating in Italy around the 16th century. The arlecchino character was a comedic servant known for its physical agility and would often perform nimble, acrobatic stunts on stage even during the most mundane of tasks. Unlike other characters in a play, the arlecchino rarely contributed to the development of the plot but nonetheless was instrumental in the pacing and comedic entertainment of the performance. Savinelli's Arlecchino pays homage to this artful archetype in this namesake series. The line is defined by a singular shape, the "111 KS" Billiard, and limited to only 1,000 total pipes. Each piece is finished in either a smooth, natural stain or a dark rustication, both paired to a technicolor mouthpiece of mosaic patterning that calls to mind the colorful, checkered costume worn by the traditional arlecchino.-Truett Smith
