Italian Estates: Savinelli Tortuga Smooth (804 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 004-006-31802
Savinelli's "804 KS" Canadian is an impressively lengthy interpretation of the classic English shape — combining a soaring bowl to an extended oval shank, then paired to a comparatively shorter, tapered stem. The sides of the shank are accented by a pair of firm yet understated ridgelines that help give the shape a sturdy presence in hand while subtly contributing some extra textural diversity to the composition. The tall bowl caters well to the Italian marque's signature neoclassic approach to traditional shapes as the bowl garners much of the overall visual focus in relation to the shank and stem. This "804 KS" design is also notably a larger, bolder sibling to Savinelli's "802" Canadian, offering a more substantial take on the classic shape.
Named after the Spanish word for "tortoise," Savinelli's Tortuga series is undeniably effective in its theme. The striking line is marked by a tortoiseshell-patterned acrylic stem, the mosaic-like visual texture of amber and caramel tones complementing the dark walnut stain of the stummel.- Jeffery Sitts
