Misc. Estates: Andrey Savenko (Sava Pipes) Reverse Calabash Caterpillar (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-008-4998
A Russian carver who draws a great deal of inspiration from nature and music, Andrey Savenko of Sava pipes produces some seriously idiosyncratic, unique pieces, often sporting a range of organic accents. This Caterpillar is one of those interesting numbers, with its evocative, segmented form and proudly upward thrust head-like bowl. It does a fine job of treading the line between somewhat corpulent and overtly compact, as the form itself is quite handy overall, despite its bold presence. It's a reverse Calabash, the internal well housed near the pipe's midsection, and chamber within is narrow and fairly deep, which is all the better, as I suspect this hungry fellow has a hankering for some of your finest leaf. Unsmoked.
