Savinelli: Saint Nicholas 2023 (616 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-77578
One of the most full-bodied examples of Savinelli's approach to the bent Billiard, the "616 KS" dramatizes the standard form with especially robust proportions. It features a hearty bowl and generous chamber with an equally plump shank and stem. It's noticeably more muscular and deep-chambered compared to the marque's other bent Billiards like the "606 KS," "670 KS," "602," and "603" designs. The "616 KS" offers plenty of reinforcing briar at its chamber walls, transition, and shank, filling the palm with ease and exemplifying what it means to be considered an iconic Italian bent Billiard.
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
