Savinelli: Regimental Smooth Bordeaux (321) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-66873
Essentially a scaled-down version of their beloved "320 KS" design, Savinelli's "321" Author maintains the form's charmingly plump curves and stout proportions, but alters the dimensions to make the full-bodied shape more compact and pocket-friendly. Shape-wise, the "321" is identical to the "320 KS," but with a slightly smaller bowl and an abbreviated shank. It's an ideal choice for those who like the robustness of the Author but seek a design that's better suited for on-the-go needs.
In honor of the British Army's Cheshire Regiment, Savinelli here presents the Regimental series, featuring rusticated and smooth-finished versions. Before being merged to form the Mercian Regiment and 1st Battalion in 2003, the Cheshire Regiment was the only remaining British infantry regiment never to have been amalgamated, and it boasted a rich history dating over 300 years, beginning originally as the 22nd Regiment of Foot and expanded in 1881 with volunteers from Cheshire. The insignia and dress ties of the regiment display its identifying gold and burgundy color palette, and Savinelli has leaned into that aesthetic for this series, with each pipe featuring a burgundy-hued acrylic stem with twin bands of golden yellow adorning the base.-Truett Smith
