Italian Estates: Savinelli Ghibli Rusticated (321) (6mm) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-006-28996
Essentially a scaled-down version of their beloved "320" design, Savinelli's "321" Author maintains the form's charmingly plump curves and stout proportions, but alters the dimensions to make the full-bodied shape more compact and pocket-friendly. Shape-wise, the "321" is identical to the "320," but with a slightly smaller bowl and an abbreviated shank. It's an ideal choice for those who like the robustness of the Author but seek a design that's better suited for on-the-go needs.
Savinelli's Ghibli series is named after the hot, dusty desert wind that originates in the Sahara and blows across the Mediterranean Sea during the spring and summer months — capable of producing powerful, hurricane force wind speeds. The Ghibli line presents one of the Italian marque's most evocative finishes, featuring a striated rustication pattern overtop unstained, natural briar. While the pairing calls to mind Savinelli's Riccio and Cocco lines, the Ghibli series orients its grooved streaks to emulate the shifting sand dunes of the desert landscape. Further accentuating the desert theme is the acrylic mouthpiece's sunny, yellow hue, accented with a mottled, marble-esque accent band. Both elements vibrantly contrast against the stummel's natural hue, which will gradually darken with time and use.- Jeffery Sitts
