Savinelli: Hercules Rusticated (315 EX)
Product Number: 002-033-45687
Savinelli's extra-large interpretation of the Prince, the "315 EX" provides all the plump, in-hand comfort of the shape, with more emphasis placed on the heel than classic English versions. The heel extends forward for a broader base and lower center of gravity, while the moderately sized shank leads to a willowy tapered stem, and the vertically compressed bowl presents a lower profile in silhouette. It maintains a staunch profile, making for a bolder rendition compared to traditional Anglo-French interpretations.
Named after the legendary hero of Greek and Roman myth, the Hercules series is a line dedicated to the Savinelli's massive Extraordinaire-sized briars, offering bold, muscular designs that are imbued with remarkably capacious chambers for those who prefer lengthy smoking sessions. Hercules was renowned for his immense strength and excellent endurance, overcoming seemingly impossible obstacles during his famous Twelve Labors and other various journeys. It's certainly a fitting name for this substantial Savinelli series and looks quite handsome here in a reserved, walnut-stained rustication paired to a jet-black vulcanite mouthpiece.- Chuck Stanion
