Nodding to iconic Italian pipes from the 1970s, Savinelli's limited-production Flambé series presents six classic shapes in a dramatic, fumed finish characterized by a rugged Porto Cervo-style rustication and a bold, dual-toned stain: Each pipe is stained a deep red-brown, with darker shades of near-black applied along the rim and upper-bowl. The unique finish is seen here in the stout 616 KS bent Billiard, complete with a jet-black acrylic stem.
Pipe Nook Notes
This is an unfiltered pipe, which is rare for a Savinelli line. If you are looking for a first pipe or are fairly new to pipe smoking, I strongly recommend trying a 6mm or 9mm filtered pipe. If you're one of the many who battle the dreaded tongue-bite, filtered pipes help to alleviate this problem. You can always try smoking your filtered pipes without a filter in place, to see if unfiltered smoking irritates your tongue, and can purchase non-filtered pipes from there. If you already know that tongue-bite is not an issue for you, then never mind. :)
