Savinelli: Antica Sandblasted (904 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-62017
The "920 KS" and "904 KS" shapes are Savinelli's most striking bent Dublin renditions, posing especially dynamic and angular profiles. Presented here is the "904 KS," which offers a dramatically forward-urging stance, almost Zulu-like in the stem's elegant bend and the gentle flare through the transition into the bowl. Unlike the "920 KS," this piece features a protruding, rounded heel that dips below the shank's line to hint at the Acorn shape. This is one of Savinelli's most popular and distinct shapes, expanding upon the standard English form for a memorable, eye-catching piece all around.
Italian for "ancient," the Antica line from Savinelli is a limited series of pipes made from new-old-stock stummels originally crafted decades ago and representing some of the marque's oldest designs. The line comprises 10 shapes, all either previously discontinued for a number of years or underrepresented across the marque's current production, and they pay tribute to the legacy of Savinelli's historic shape chart. Through the Antica series, these underrated designs have been carefully curated and revitalized for present-day pipe smokers and Savinelli aficionados. They're brought to light in a traditional, walnut-stained sandblast with jet-black, vulcanite stems for a vintage aesthetic that honors these shapes' history and Savinelli's legacy — presented now on the modern stage.-Truett Smith
