Savinelli: Antica Sandblasted (816 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-62097
Savinelli's "816 KS" shape combines elements of the classic Foursquare and an oval-shanked Billiard. The bowl remains traditional and not paneled like that of the Foursquare, and the shank, while paneled, is rectangular in cross section instead of square. Such a shaping cue makes for a more sleek and diminutive shank-and-stem combination, adding visual prominence to the firm-heeled bowl and accentuating this pipe's Italian neoclassic aesthetic. It's a generous design with plenty of chamber capacity and the added benefit of sitting upright on a flat surface.
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
