Savinelli: Hercules Rusticated (320 EX)
Product Number: 002-033-45688
Savinelli's "320 EX" is a thoroughly Italian take on the classic Author shape, pairing a plump, well-rounded bowl to an equally robust shank and stem combination. Noticeably larger than its KS variant, this EX version a properly full-bodied rendition, featuring soft, supple curves throughout its hearty proportions and bold, masculine lines. The "320 KS" is, in essence, a more substantial, muscular take on the Italian marque's other Author design, the "321 KS," and in EX size, it's made all the more so. Reassuringly stout in hand, and housing an impressively broad chamber, it's the perfect pipe to sit back and relax with — the epitome of a comfort pipe and considered a defining, signature shape among Savinelli's portfolio.
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.- Jeffery Sitts
