Savinelli Autograph: Autograph Sandblasted Freehand (6mm)
Product Number: 002-790-0606
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. What immediately grabbed my attention was how perfectly the sandblasted grain follows the bowl's shaping as tight, uniform waves of ring grain cascade down the paneled flanks. The smooth, gently rounded rim offers textural and visual contrast with its light, chestnut stain that illuminates the birdseye patterns that dance across its surface. The shaping of the heel echoes the rim's curved orientation, though it offers noticeably firmer ridgelines that help inform the outline of the panels along the bowl. The round shank and saddle stem take up little of the visual weight, allowing the bowl and of all its spectacular grain to remain the focal point.- Jeffery Sitts
