Savinelli: Hercules Rusticated (114 EX)
Product Number: 002-033-52171
Savinelli boasts a rather robust shape chart, not to mean that all of their shapes are robust, but the diversity of shapes is grand. The Italian marque has an especially wide array of straight Billiard designs, all differing in their size and proportions. The "114 KS" is one of only two saddle-stemmed varieties, joining the "110," and normally, in its standard KS size designation, it sits right in the middle of Savinelli's size spectrum — a touch larger than the "104" and "106" but exhibits a trimmer style than, say, the "101," more similar to the "111 KS." However, here in EX size, it enjoys the same relative proportions but on a grander overall scale. Lovers of English classics will appreciate the traditional shaping and relative proportions but with a considerably larger bowl to ensure a comforting in hand feel and plenty of chamber space.
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.-Truett Smith
