Savinelli: Riserva (802) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-47162
The bold, svelte "802" Canadian from Savinelli presents a classic shape with a bit of Italian styling in its prominent heel. The long oval shank maintains low altitude at the transition, reinforcing the august ascension of the bowl as a distinct element. Offering subtle ridgelines along each side of the shank for a bit of structural foundation, this classic English shape has been ably rendered in striking Italian style.
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
