Savinelli Autograph: Artisan Smooth Shield (6mm)
Product Number: 002-790-0702
This Shield from Savinelli belongs to their Autograph series, a line of pipes carved from start to finish out of Extra-Extra-grade briar by one of the Italian marque's skilled artisans. This piece features an eye-shaped rim that gives the piece two prominent ridgelines that run the length of the bowl's flanks, wrapping around the underside of the bowl, lengthening the heel past the transition. The straight shank-and-stem combination offsets some of the bowl's robustness with sleek lines that terminate at the saddle stem's fine bit. The piece wears a ruddy smooth finish that perfectly encapsulates the sweeping flame grain of the bowl, while lush birdseye spots the rim and top of the shank. The jet-black of the acrylic stem perfectly complements the warm tones of the stummel, adding a classy note to the pipe's profile. This piece can also accommodate a 6mm filter.--Davin Hylton
