Italian Estates: Savinelli Autograph Smooth Bent Bulldog (8) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-006-32798

Savinelli's Autograph line presents us with pipes that are made entirely by one of the Italian marque's most talented artisans, their freedom from the standard shape chart affording them the opportunity to express their creativity in every piece. In this case we see a hearty bent Bulldog, possessed of a tall, proud, solid bowl, rising high over two and a half inches and with a chamber over two inches deep. The waistline is mid-set, marked by a soft, wrapping ridgeline from which the shape's taper takes hold, compressing the briar to the rim. This bowl sits atop a pronounced heel, one made all the more firm due to the ridgelines which frame the shank as a diamond, with the bottom one thrusting the heel into prominence. The two ridges on the flanks of the shank sweep upward lightly after the transition, and each one follows the slight upturn of the shank quite well. An interesting design is showcased on the stem, where the top and bottom halves of the saddle's base feature opposing slants, with the top angled to the top left and the bottom to the bottom right, bringing more attention to the stem itself. A warm, mahogany stain dresses the stummel, revealing a flame grain pattern that wraps around the bowl, with birdseye crowning the rim and handsomely accentuating this bold piece of Italian design. Unsmoked.
