Savinelli Autograph: Autograph Smooth Rhodesian (4) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-790-30810
Crafted from start to finish by hand, courtesy of one of Savinelli's best artisans, the Autograph series showcases to talent and creativity of the Italian marque's carvers by giving them freedom from the shape chart and allowing them to use specially selected blocks of aged briar. This Rhodesian is an uncommon offering from the line not just in its shaping, but in that the profile itself is seldom crafted. The shank and stem present with a pair of gently rendered ridgelines through the flanks, while the top of the stem features a pair of ridges that combine at the base but don't push into the shank itself. The transition is wide and leaves plenty of room to drape a thumb, leading to a bowl whose shape is almost reminiscent of a Cutty, given its forward urge, but that flares out to a firm ridge before the taper to the rim and is thoroughly curved at the fore. This curving further accentuates the forward cant of the bowl and leads to a highly unique outline that ensures this pipe stands out amongst any collection. Dressed in a vibrant auburn stain that showcases handsome grain throughout, this pipe is rather traditionally appointed with a black acrylic stem, despite its unique shaping.-John McElheny
