Savinelli Autograph: Artisan Smooth Freehand (6mm)
Product Number: 002-790-0403
Fashioned using only select quality briar, Savinelli's Autograph series is the Italian marque's handmade line of pipes and doesn't adhere to a shape chart, emphasizing the grain and shaping of each piece. The firm's artisans craft each piece from start to finish with each individual example being unique, ranging in style from classically inclined pieces to daring Freehands, like this particular offering. It calls to mind the Fan shape in its execution, featuring a splayed rim crowned in dimpled plateau and broad flanks full of exquisite grain. Unlike the sweeping style often displayed by the Fan, this Freehand displays a cinched waistline, accentuating the roundness of the base while also providing a remarkably natural, voluptuous in-hand feel. The grain orientation of this piece of briar certainly influenced its shaping, with tight streaks of flame grain emanating from the plump heel and creeping up the flanks before meeting the jagged rim. A wonderful piece that'll surely satisfy any grain aficionado.- Jeffery Sitts
