Savinelli Autograph: Mister A Autograph Smooth Bent Billiard
Product Number: 002-790-0080
When Achille Savinelli, son of Giancarlo Savinelli, got together with Savinelli's top artisans to layout the plans for the Mister A, the goals they produced were thus: a line of Autographs that remain individual from pipe to pipe, but which also both borrow from Savinelli's classic, standard-chart design traditions, and push that style towards the more modern. As for standards, it was decided that this line would begin by picking from higher up the grades of briar available. Smooth-finished Mister A Autographs, for example, would as a baseline make use of the same quality briar we would typically expect to yield an Autograph "00."
In this Mister A Autograph, we find a beautiful bent Billiard shape, its bowl combining the elegant heel of the "601" or "602" with the broader and slightly squatter proportions of the "616;" in the shank, however, things become even more unique, the transition featuring a graceful sweeping gesture, leading the eye to the organic, flared briar ferrule near the mouthpiece, which itself is crowned in craggy plateau. As for grain? Well, as you can see, this briar is positively packed with fine, angel hair flame, brought out through a warm, medium walnut contrast. Beautiful work.- Andrew Wike - Eric N. Squires
