Savinelli Autograph: Autograph Sandblasted Bent Apple (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-790-31004
Savinelli's Autograph is the Italian marque's limited-production, handmade series, utilizing specially aged extra-extra plateau briar and being crafted by only three of the brand's most experienced carvers. From start to finish, the process of crafting a single one of these pipes is handled by a single one of these veteran craftsmen, the series providing them with design freedom and allowing them to express their personal creativity. A lengthy and robust bent Apple, this pipe features a wide transition with plenty of room to drape a digit, one which leads into a gently flaring shank that expands out toward its base. At the base, the shank meets a firm ridge that delineates the start of a softly domed face, where the stylized black acrylic stem joins. The extended tenon of the stem leaves some negative space that draws the eye and pulls some of the visual weight off of the bowl, keeping this pipe looking fairly balanced. Said bowl stands atop a sweeping, slightly lifted heel which pushes its strikingly round contours into prominence, a mid-set waist filling out the hand with curves before tapering to the forward-canting rim. Dressed in a crisp, dark sandblast, there's plenty of handsome grain to appreciate across the stummel.-John McElheny
