Savinelli's "614"Morellina Smooth Brown 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.
The title of Savinelli's Morellina series hints at its color palette: a deep walnut brown indicative of the line's characteristic stem. This smooth example reveals an alluring, dusky motif, and features a custom-cast acrylic stem of swirling cream and mocha hues. Such a stem emulates the look of traditional Cumberland but with lighter tones and a more fluid pattern, adding intrigue and character to the overall theme. It's further accented by a trim nickel ring, completing the distinctive aesthetic but with an overall subdued demeanor — perfect for those inclined toward more traditional motifs but who still desire a pipe of individual style.
The Morellina series takes its name from the endearment of "moro", a traditional Italian noun meaning dark brown, used for example to describe a very dark brown coat of a horse. With a dark brown bowl in the smooth finish, this pipe is characterized by an acrylic stem with a beautiful brown mélange color. Model 614 belongs to the classic Billiard style. As you can see, it is surely the model with the most pronounced bend. The bend is so sharp which requires different more passages during the finishing. An extraordinarily elegant model not advised to less expert smokers.
