Savinelli: Saint Nicholas 2023 (311 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-77925
Savinelli's "311 KS" Poker is a resolute, yet dynamic take on the classic utilitarian shape characterized by the bowl's pronounced forward cant and succinct saddle stem displaying the lightest hint of downward turn. Its sturdy sitting capability makes it the perfect desk pipe while the crisply chamfered rim echoes the firm aesthetic of the defined transition and cylindrical bowl. It's also a slightly more compact offering compared to the Italian marque's other Poker design, the "310 KS," which displays a raised, rounded rim and a slightly longer downturned stem. While the "311 KS" is somewhat downsized, it certainly doesn't sacrifice anything in regards to chamber depth or its charming practicality.
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
