Savinelli: Dolomiti Smooth (128) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-75631
Savinelli's "128" Billiard is one of the marque's larger interpretations of the shape-chart standard, the tall bowl commanding much of the profile's visual weight — a signature approach within Italian pipe making that's also a key aspect of Savinelli's immediately recognizable style. The bowl's prominence is further accentuated through the gradual taper of the arrow straight shank and stem combination. The "128" is notably longer and more muscular compared to the firm's "106" and "104" Billiards, while also being slightly stouter than their trim "107" design. This is an ideal choice for fans of classic shapes but desire a pipe with a bit more substance all around.
Inspired by the iconic Dolomite mountain range in northeastern Italy, as well as the sedimentary carbonate rock of the same name found there and in various historic buildings throughout Rome, Savinelli's Dolomiti series is fittingly characterized by its earthy brown color palette. This particular example wears a glossy, smooth, auburn finish, accented by a small beige acrylic band, as well as a matching acrylic mouthpiece of variegated caramel and cream tones. Such an aesthetic calls to mind the appearance of the mountains near dusk when the last rays of sunlight lend the pale grey stone a darker, richer, and warmer color.-Truett Smith
