Savinelli: Bacco Smooth Natural (409) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-75750
Out of Savinelli's straight Dublin renditions, the "409" and "401" share the most in common, both being a touch smaller than the "412 KS." While the dimensions of the "409" and "401" are similar in regards to length, height, and chamber depth, the "409" found here displays more traditional proportions — the stoutness of the shank more balanced and consistent in comparison to the bowl's height, while the shank of the "401" is a touch more slender to emphasize the bowl's height. Such a design makes this "409" the most classically English-styled Dublin in the Italian marque's portfolio, perfect for lovers of timeless shape chart standards who appreciate Savinelli's history of luxury and stunning finishes.
Savinelli's Bacco series pays tribute to Bacchus, Roman god of the grape harvest, wine, ritual madness, fertility, theater, and just about all things associated with raucous parties. In Roman culture, wine and the grapes that produce it were viewed not only as gifts from the god, but also as symbolic representations of him on Earth. In Savinelli's homage to the deity and all Italian red wines, a shimmering Bordeaux-colored mouthpiece is used to evoke the appearance of the historic imbibement. The vibrant mouthpiece is paired to either a smooth, natural stain or a rugged, burgundy-hued rustication, with bright metal bands accenting the stem base.-Truett Smith
