Savinelli: Luisa Fiammata Sandblasted (811 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-74516
Like Savinelli's "315 KS" Prince, the "811 KS" displays a slightly angled transition and downturned stem, making for a lithe, elegant profile. This piece, though, fits a tall Billiard bowl on the end in place of the Prince's squat, Apple-like form — this particular Billiard being more slender and svelte than many of the Italian marque's other iterations. It's one of Savinelli's more streamlined pieces, full of sleek dynamism and offering a lightweight presence and classic shaping style overall.
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
