Savinelli: La Corta Rusticated (510 C) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-74317
The largest straight Bulldog on Savinelli's shape chart, the "510 KS" is a bold rendition that, while catering to classic English shaping standards, adds extra height to the bowl and presents a strongly tapered, angular presence above the shape's characteristic, equatorial beadlines or ridgeline. It's an inherently masculine design, marked by hard, rigid lines through the diamond shank and stem and muscular proportions throughout, catering to appreciators of traditional shapes rendered in robust style. This "510 C" rendition, however, fits that stoutness and muscularity into a compact, Nosewarmer pipe, maintaining the same bowl size and chamber depth as the Italian marque's standard KS version but in a more pocket-friendly overall length.
An aptly named series, Savinelli's La Corta line — Italian for "short" — presents several of the marque's iconic shapes in abbreviated Nosewarmer dimensions. That said, only the length of these pipes have been altered; the chamber depths and muscular proportions remain the same as Savinelli's regular fare, creating convenient, travel-worthy smokers that don't sacrifice on chamber volume or in-hand substance. This particular example wears a dark-stained rustication for subtle texture, and it's fitted with a trim brass accent ring and amber-hued acrylic stem for handsome flash and attractive color variation.-Truett Smith
