Savinelli: Monsieur Sandblasted (703 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-45363
The "701" and "703 KS" shapes are Savinelli's interpretations of the classic Lovat, displaying the same general combination of Billiard bowl, elongated shank, and abbreviated saddle stem, but they vary in their proportions, catering to different pipesmokers' preferences. Seen here is the "703 KS," which increases the overall size of the "701" and adds more muscularity to the stretched shank. With more chamber depth and added overall length, it's an ideal choice for those interested in a larger Lovat, the design doing well to exemplify Savinelli's signature style — maintaining a traditional English aesthetic but dramatizing the proportions.
Similar to the Tortuga series, Savinelli's Monsieur line offers pipes with an included chamber cap, making them especially handy for saving a partial smoke while on the go — keeping the remaining tobacco from drying out and preventing ash from filling your pocket. However, unlike the vivid pattern of the Tortuga series, the Monsieur opts for a more reserved presentation, the stummel here treated to a crisp sandblast and handsomely accented by two trim, bright metal rings along the base of the jet-black acrylic mouthpiece.-Truett Smith
