Savinelli Autograph: Autograph Sandblasted Fan (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-790-31025
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. The Fan is one of the most recognizably Italian shapes in the portfolios of many carvers, alongside profiles like the Hawkbill, and it's one which is regularly produced in the Autograph workshop. The shape comprises a broad expanse of briar that's connected through the transition and which flares out of a central heel that's extremely pronounced in silhouette. The shank is one with the bowl, and the unbroken arc of briar through the top is capped with an expansive crown of craggy plateau, the stem arcing out of the aft of this plateau with a lengthy stretch of multicolored acrylic. Dressing the briar here is a crisp, walnut-hued sandblast, one which reveals a wealth of rippling grain.-John McElheny
