Savinelli: Gianduia Rusticated Black (315 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73570
Savinelli's interpretation of the Prince, the "315 KS" provides all the plump, in-hand comfort of the shape, with more emphasis placed on the heel than classic English versions. The heel extends forward for a broader base and lower center of gravity, while the moderately sized shank leads to a willowy tapered stem, and the vertically compressed bowl presents a lower profile in silhouette. It maintains a staunch profile, making for a bolder rendition compared to traditional Anglo-French interpretations.
Fashioned as a tribute to the commedia dell'arte, Savinelli's Gianduia series is named after a popular character in the art form, known for his love of wine, women, and song, as well as being a representation of Turin and the Piedmont region of Italy. Such a festive namesake necessitates an eye-catching finish, and Savinelli has delivered, offering a single shape — the "315 KS" Prince — in either a smooth, natural finish or earthy rustication, both accented by a bright stem of swirling, custom-cast acrylic evocative of the Gianduia's iconic costume. The series is presented here in its rusticated iteration.- Chuck Stanion
