Savinelli: Riserva (624) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-47167
Overall, the "624" bent Bulldog from Savinelli maintains a highly traditional form, both in shaping cues and relative proportions. That said, it also features a contrasting blend of softness and rigidity. Through the diamond shank, the lines are crisp and firm; at the bowl, though, the design is softened a touch, trading the Bulldog shape's conventional beadlines for a rounded, supple ridgeline at the waist. That softness is matched by the shank and stem's gentle, languid bend, while the bowl offers a comfortable substance in hand.
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.-Truett Smith
