Savinelli: Saint Nicholas 2023 (614) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-77890
Savinelli's "614" is the Italian marque's most deeply bent shape, resembling the classic Oom Paul. The shank curls upward, almost vertically, making for a compact length that hangs comfortably from the jaw, and the stretched heel and rounded Billiard bowl sit naturally in hand. Aligning more with traditional English proportions, the shank and transition are on the stouter end compared to some of Savinelli's Italian neoclassic shapes — an excellent choice for those interested in an Italian-made, hands-free smoker but desire a form of more English sensibilities.
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
