Savinelli: Riserva (315 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-47159
Savinelli's interpretation of the Prince, the "315 KS" 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.
Savinelli considers numerous aspects when examining the briar quality of a pipe, including grain orientation, lack of flaws (such as sand pits), and how the grain aligns with the shape. How well a certain pipe meets these criteria determines its finish and tier within Savinelli's lineup, with the most estimable displays set aside for the Italian marque's more limited productions — like the Punto Oro and Giubileo d'Oro series. For the Riserva line, Savinelli has spent the past 10 years saving certain bowls from this superlative selection, commended specifically by their exemplary flame grain. Dressed in a simple, auburn stain, the Riserva line showcases some of the finest briar Savinelli has to offer in a traditional presentation that draws focus to the immaculate grain orientation, with Giancarlo Savinelli's signature emblazoned on the stem.- Chuck Stanion
