Savinelli: Venere Smooth (510 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-45546
The largest straight Bulldog on Savinelli's shape chart, the "510 KS" is a bold rendition that, while catering to classic English shaping standards, adds extra height to the bowl and presents a strongly tapered, angular presence above the shape's characteristic, equatorial beadlines or ridgeline. It's an inherently masculine design, marked by hard, rigid lines through the diamond shank and stem and muscular proportions throughout, catering to appreciators of traditional shapes rendered in robust style.
The inspiration for Savinelli's Venere series comes from Sandro Botticelli's 15th century painting, The Birth of Venus. The painting, currently featured in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, is perhaps the most recognizable depiction of the Roman goddess ever created. With long, blonde hair enveloping a voluptuous figure and skin as fair as sea foam, the representation follows the ancient Greek motif of Aphrodite's origins. In accordance with its Italian heritage, Savinelli pays homage to the Florentine painter and his magnum opus with the Venere line, featuring pipes finished in either a dusky, auburn rustication or, in this case, a honey-blonde stain that illuminates the briar's natural grain with a bright brass band accenting the stem base.-Truett Smith
