Savinelli Autograph: Autograph Smooth Freehand (0) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-790-0428
All Savinelli Autographs are handmade by experienced artisans. The line gives these craftspeople an opportunity to stretch creatively, and to accommodate the grain of the briar more effectively by not adhering to shape-chart standards. Often, the freedom of expression available in this line results in bold and new shapes, and other times, they're more conservative, but always display a dedication to innovation. Offered here is a Freehand that resembles a gestural Volcano in profile and is one of the highest-tiered pieces offered within the Autograph series, denoted by its prestigious "0" stamp. This piece features the Volcano's ridgelined base but mirrors it again underneath, creating a stunning silhouette that's one of the most unique I've ever seen and looks like another pipe emerging from its base. Not only do the ridgelines provide for an intriguing feel in hand, they've been shaped to maximize the briar's grain orientation. Swirling birdseye patterns dominate the underside of both ridgelines while tight streaks of vertical grain line their flanks, matching the grain the wraps around the bowl above. It's simply a spectacular piece from the Savinelli workshop and would certainly elevate any collection it joins.- Jeffery Sitts
