Savinelli: Flambé Rusticated Brown (311 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-66634
Savinelli's "311 KS" Poker is a resolute, yet dynamic take on the classic utilitarian shape characterized by the bowl's pronounced forward cant and succinct saddle stem displaying the lightest hint of downward turn. Its sturdy sitting capability makes it the perfect desk pipe while the crisply chamfered rim echoes the firm aesthetic of the defined transition and cylindrical bowl. It's also a slightly more compact offering compared to the Italian marque's other Poker design, the "310 KS," which displays a raised, rounded rim and a slightly longer downturned stem. While the "311 KS" is somewhat downsized, it certainly doesn't sacrifice anything in regards to chamber depth or its charming practicality.
Italian pipe design is widely celebrated for its often dramatic reinterpretations of classic pipe shapes and its use of distinctive finishes. Among the most iconic Italian finishes are those marked by fumed rims: Dating to the 1960s and distinguished by dark, near-black upper bowls that graduate to lighter hues across the rest of the stummel, the decades-old aesthetic lends pipes a rustic, weathered look. Savinelli's limited-production and retro-inspired Flambé series celebrates this signature Italian finish through a dense rustication and a deep, red-brown stain that darkens toward the rim, solidifying the finish's Italian identity. The Flambé name denotes the stain's recognizable gradient, meaning "flamed" or "blazed" in French and referencing the culinary technique of glazing dishes with liquor and briefly setting them alight.-Truett Smith
