Savinelli: Saint Nicholas 2023 (804 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-76386
Savinelli's "804 KS" Canadian is an impressively lengthy interpretation of the classic English shape — combining a soaring bowl to an extended oval shank, then paired to a comparatively shorter, tapered stem. The sides of the shank are accented by a pair of firm yet understated ridgelines that help give the shape a sturdy presence in hand while subtly contributing some extra textural diversity to the composition. The tall bowl caters well to the Italian marque's signature neoclassic approach to traditional shapes as the bowl garners much of the overall visual focus in relation to the shank and stem. This "804 KS" design is also notably a larger, bolder sibling to Savinelli's "802" Canadian, offering a more substantial take on the classic shape.
Among Savinelli's most collectible series, the Saint Nicholas line has remained a highly anticipated annual release since its debut in 2013, ushering in the holiday season with a distinctly festive color palette. Furthermore, the series often showcases Savinelli's reputation for singular, high-quality acrylic, and this Saint Nicholas 2023 pipe is no exception. Dressed in a dark, reserved rustication, this piece highlights this edition's distinct array of accents: A stem of shimmering, dark blue complements the earthy tones of the stummel, while a snow-white acrylic band flanked by nickel rings adds striking flash for an aesthetic that's at once eye-catching and comforting — the combination evocative of sunlight's glint on snow.-Truett Smith
