Savinelli: Hercules Rusticated (111 EX)
Product Number: 002-033-51936
A classically inclined, deep-chambered rendition of the timeless Billiard, Savinelli's "111 EX" is a bold take on the shape chart standard and is proudly Italian in its execution, boasting even larger proportions than its KS size variant. The towering bowl commands much of the shape's visual weight, paired to a comparatively slimmer, round shank and tapered mouthpiece. The "111" is closely related to the marque's "104" Billiard, with the primary difference being that this "111 EX" is bigger and considerably more muscular throughout. Such features are ideal for fans of traditional pipe designs who also prefer an arrangement that offers house pipe-like chamber depth for longer smokes and a substantial presence in hand.
Named after the legendary hero of Greek and Roman myth, the Hercules series is a line dedicated to 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
