Savinelli: Luisa Fiammata Sandblasted (624 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-74500
Overall, the "624 KS" bent Bulldog from Savinelli maintains a highly traditional form, both in shaping cues and relative proportions. That said, it also features a contrasting blend of softness and rigidity. Through the diamond shank, the lines are crisp and firm; at the bowl, though, the design is softened a touch, trading the Bulldog shape's conventional beadlines for a rounded, supple ridgeline at the waist. That softness is matched by the shank and stem's gentle, languid bend, while the bowl offers a comfortable substance in hand.
A limited-edition series released in 2023, the Luisa Fiammata line honors Savinelli's Factory Director, Luisa Bozzetti, whose legacy encompasses a 50-year tenure with the Italian marque. These pipes represent Luisa's last project before her retirement, and the collection features stummels that Luisa set aside throughout her career, reserving them for their stunning grain. These specially selected pipes — curated personally by Luisa herself — are available in either a crisp, chestnut sandblast or a smooth, auburn finish, and they span a range of the marque's shapes, some of which have since been discontinued from Savinelli's regular-production shape chart. Moreover, only 50 smooth examples were crafted for the Luisa Fiammata release, and each one is serialized.-Truett Smith
