Savinelli: Antica Sandblasted (824 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-62068
Even though Savinelli's shape chart is primarily comprised of designs that hew fairly close to traditional archetypes, the Italian marque also offers more creative renditions — those that combine the design characteristics of several classic pipe shapes. The "824 KS" is one such piece, pairing a Lumberman's elongated, oval shank and abbreviated saddle stem to a bold, Brandy-like bowl. What truly sets this design apart, though, is its slightly bent posture: The stem is subtly downturned, and the shank angles upward from the transition, lending prominence to the bowl's firm heel and informing the profile's forward-jutting aesthetic.
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
