Savinelli: Avorio Rusticated Brown (409) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73158
Out of Savinelli's straight Dublin renditions, the "409" and "401" share the most in common, both being a touch smaller than the "412 KS." While the dimensions of the "409" and "401" are similar in regards to length, height, and chamber depth, the "409" found here displays more traditional proportions — the stoutness of the shank more balanced and consistent in comparison to the bowl's height, while the shank of the "401" is a touch more slender to emphasize the bowl's height. Such a design makes this "409" the most classically English-styled Dublin in the Italian marque's portfolio, perfect for lovers of timeless shape chart standards who appreciate Savinelli's history of luxury and stunning finishes.
Savinelli's Avorio finish was introduced in 2023, and its name is a direct reference to its appearance: Avorio translates into English as "ivory" from Italian. Referring specifically to their stems, Avorio pipes feature custom-cast stems of ivory-white acrylic striated with slightly darker hues, immediately reminiscent of their namesake and evocative of ivory-stemmed pipes of yesteryear. The Avorio line comprises both smooth and rusticated finishes, with the smooth version showcasing a deep, warm, and glossy Bordeaux stain, while the rustication pairs its craggy texture to a darker, chestnut-toned hue.-Truett Smith
