Savinelli: Saint Nicholas 2023 (602) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-77603
Trimmer and more lithe than is usual in typically robust Italian pipe design, Savinelli's "602" is a bent Billiard with more of a Danish flair, especially noticeable in the sweeping curves of the silhouette and slight taper of the bowl toward the rim. The proportions between bowl and shank, though, return us to bowl-centric Italian territory, contributing to a bold, sporty, and active character, as appropriate in a sports car as in an armchair.
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.-Chuck Stanion
