Savinelli: Dante Sandblasted (653/700) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-59257
Savinelli's limited-edition Dante series celebrates the life and legacy of Italian poet, writer, and philosopher Dante Alighieri, known today simply as Dante. He's perhaps most renowned for his magnum opus, The Divine Comedy, and Dante's preference for writing in the vernacular instead of Latin was integral in establishing Italian as a modern, standardized language and in making literature accessible to everyday people. Furthermore, Dante is credited as the first to use terza rima, a poetic construction consisting of three-line stanzas with an interlocked rhyme scheme, and in Italy, he's referred to as il Sommo Poeta, "the Supreme Poet," joining Petrarch and Boccaccio as one of the tre corone, "three crowns," of Italian literature.
Released on the 700th anniversary of his death in 1321, Savinelli's Dante line comprises a singular, individual shape exclusive to this special series: a subtly bent Brandy with a squat bowl and firm, protruding heel. The stout shank-and-stem combination resembles that of the Italian marque's iconic "320 KS" Author, only here fitted to a broad Brandy bowl. It wears a crisp sandblast and chocolate-brown stain, offering a traditional color palette that draws focus to the sterling silver accent depicting Dante's bust atop the shank. Serialized among the total 700 pieces made, this pipe is an exclusive, limited-edition offering from Savinelli complete with a specially designed box as well as a leaflet detailing Dante's enduring legacy.-Truett Smith
