Savinelli: Alligator Blue (114 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-76093
Savinelli boasts a rather robust shape chart, not to mean that all of their shapes are robust, but the diversity of shapes is grand. The Italian marque has an especially wide array of straight Billiard designs, all differing in their size and proportions. The "114 KS" is one of only two saddle-stemmed varieties, joining the "110," and it sits right in the middle of Savinelli's size spectrum: It's a touch larger than the "104" and "106" but exhibits a trimmer style than, say, the "101," more similar to the "111 KS." Lovers of English classics will appreciate the traditional shaping and relative proportions but with a slightly larger bowl to ensure a comforting in hand feel and plenty of chamber space.
Featuring a mix of smooth-polished panels and deep, rusticated channels, Savinelli's Alligator series presents a finish that readily evokes the scaly, bumpy hide of its namesake texturally and visually. The stummel's vibrant stain further accentuates its eye catching appeal while the trim brass band provides some subtle, refined contrast to the bowl's rugged disposition. For a playful accenting touch, the stem of each pipe features the stenciled silhouette of an alligator patiently awaiting its next meal — or bowl, rather.-Truett Smith
