Savinelli's Prince shape has been a prominent addition to many of their series, and certainly continues to be favored by smokers with very different tastes in pipes. The shape is easy in the jaw, with a comfortable feel, as well a natural grasp between the forefinger and thumb. Now the Prince here is quite more robust than a classic English Prince shape, and that is perhaps the key to its success. The shape in this scale produces a full smoke for a variety of cuts and blends, and easily sits on the desk or workbench. The rusticated auburn finish of the Orient sports a matching amber-red stem and brass band accent.
