Savinelli: Tre Rusticated (401) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-48855
A svelte and slender straight Dublin, Savinelli's "401" presents a traditional form with Savinelli personality, including a bold heel that transitions into a low-set, straight shank and tapered mouthpiece. The flat rim contributes to the geometry and maintains a simple elegance, harmonizing with the lines of the bowl and shank as the eyes are continuously led forward. While this "401" does maintain Savinelli's bowl-centric, Italian neoclassic proportions, the style is more subtle here — the bowl more conservatively flared and the overall shaping hewing closely to traditional English style.
The vast majority of Savinelli's portfolio consists of pipes drilled with a 6mm airway to accommodate the Italian marque's proprietary balsa filters. While these filtered Savinelli pipes come with an included adapter for use without a filter, some pipesmokers prefer not to deal with that added accessory. Thankfully, Savinelli offers the Tre series: It's a line devoted to pipes with a 3mm draft hole, tre meaning "three" in Italian. No filters. No adapters. Just briar. With this particular offering dressed in the line's chocolate-hued rustication with the added elegance of a trim brass accent ring to contrast the stummel's rugged texture.- Chuck Stanion
