Italian Estates: Savinelli Porto Cervo Rusticated (812) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-35782
Exemplifying Savinelli's creative approach to classic shapes, the "812" is, in essence, a bent Canadian — interpreting the English shape chart standard through a more dramatic, whimsical lens. The stummel remains rooted in tradition, with the elongated, oval shank giving way to an upright Billiard bowl. By subtly bending the abbreviated stem, though, Savinelli has effectively accentuated the firm heel at the fore and given the transition a more angled appearance in profile. Furthermore, the downturned mouthpiece balances out the long form for a more comfortable clench and accents the sleekness of the shank through its elegant curve.
A town bathed in opulence, Porto Cervo is located on the northern coast of the isle of Sardinia, just to the west of Italy. With a population of under 500, the seaside resort is marked by lavish accommodations and luxury yachts, the Hotel Cala di Volpe in particular known for being featured in the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me. The village's reputation for class and elegance inspired this line from Savinelli, dressing this piece in a glossy, dark-stained rustication, accented by trim brass accoutrements and smooth-polished briar at the rim and shank end.-Truett Smith
