Savinelli: Onda Sandblasted (628) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-32837
Savinelli's "628" bent Brandy displays a tall, conservatively tapered bowl at the end of a smooth, slightly elongated and curling transition. The shape features an excellent balance of supple curves and elegant line work throughout, with the bowl tapering more subtly toward the rim and posing a leaner profile than the Italian marque's other bent Brandy designs, namely the "644 KS" and "645 KS." Comparatively, the "628" prioritizes height over plumpness, catering more toward traditional English renditions, and houses a deeper chamber inside the more slender, poised bowl.
A rather reserved series from Savinelli, the Onda line is presented here in its sandblasted version — the stummel stained a dark hue, with hints of lighter, contrasting color peeking out along the textured peaks of the finish to match the smooth-polished briar of the rim. In Italian onda means "wave," and that motif is manifested in the twin accent rings adorning the shank end: Two brass and nickel accoutrements meet in a wavy, undulating pattern, inspired by the line's sea-worthy namesake to add a dose of flash to the color palette.- Jeffery Sitts
