Italian Estates: Savinelli Tre Smooth (802) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-34364
The bold, svelte "802" Canadian from Savinelli presents a classic shape with a bit of Italian styling in its prominent heel. The long, oval shank maintains low altitude at the transition, reinforcing the august ascension of the bowl as a distinct element. Offering subtle ridgelines along each side of the shank for a bit of structural foundation, this classic English shape has been ably rendered in striking Italian style.
The vast majority of Savinelli's portfolio consists of pipes drilled with a 6mm airway to accommodate the Italian marque's proprietary balsa filters. While these filtered Savinelli pipes come with an included adapter for use without a filter, some pipe smokers prefer not to deal with that added accessory. Thankfully, Savinelli offers the Tre series: It's a line devoted to pipes with a 3mm draft hole, tre meaning "three" in Italian. No filters. No adapters. Just briar. With this particular offering dressed in the line's smooth, honey-blonde finish, resembling Savinelli's Siena series but with the added elegance of a trim brass accent ring.- Chuck Stanion
