Savinelli Autograph: Autograph Smooth Freehand (0) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-790-30897
A truly striking Freehand from Savinelli, this piece, as part of the Italian workshop's Autograph line, was handcrafted from start to finish by one of the firm's most experienced artisans. This particular offering boasts a "0" grade, which is reserved for pipes of superior shaping, engineering and finishing. It's obvious why this piece earned such a prestigious grace, as just a simple glance immediately charms and captures the attention. Boasting a build similar to a Brandy or Billiard shape, the piece pairs a muscular, forward-driving bowl to an upturned oval shank and a steeply curved tapered stem, the latter of which promotes a comfortable smoking posture. The bowl's active posture and the shank and stem's fluid curvature lend the entire composition a dynamic appearance in profile. The most striking part of this piece, however, is the aft of the bowl, which displays an outcropping of briar that sweeps upward in a wave-like crest and curves toward the aft side of the composition. This briar outcropping lends an organic flair to the form and mirrors the curvature of the bowl, shank, and stem. It's all dressed in an auburn-smooth finish that highlights an exceptional showing of flame grain throughout the stummel.--Davin Hylton
