Savinelli: Siena (673 KS) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-78008
The "673 KS" shape is Savinelli's take on the iconic bent Bulldog design. While the overall profile remains true to the traditional English shape chart standard — marked by a paneled shank and tapered rim — the Italian marque has imbued it with their own stylized aesthetic. Most notably, the shank is triangular instead of diamond in cross section, a signature Savinelli shaping cue, and the bowl features some added plumpness about the base before tapering slightly toward the rim above the waist. It makes for a distinctly recognizable Savinelli pipe, replete with a substantial voluptuousness in hand, while still maintaining a strong degree of classic appeal.
Savinelli's Siena line, named for the city in Tuscany, is one of the marque's most traditionally inclined and reserved series, finishing stummels in a warm, mahogany stain and pairing them to jet-black acrylic mouthpieces. Fitting its namesake, the line's stain resembles the red brick of Siena's Piazza del Campo, the city's main square, which features the Torre del Mangia, the second tallest medieval tower in Italy. Unlike the majority of the Savinelli's pipes that are drilled to accommodate 6mm filters, the Siena is composed of pieces that accept 9mm balsa filters. Aesthetically, it's an elegantly understated presentation and is an ideal choice for pipe smokers who prefer 9mm filters or, simply, a wider airway.-Truett Smith
