Savinelli: Luisa Fiammata Sandblasted (824 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-74531
Even though Savinelli's shape chart is primarily comprised of designs that hew fairly close to traditional archetypes, the Italian marque also offers more creative renditions — those that combine the design characteristics of several classic pipe shapes. The "824 KS" is one such piece, pairing a Lumberman's elongated, oval shank and abbreviated saddle stem to a bold, Brandy-like bowl. What truly sets this design apart, though, is its slightly bent posture: The stem is subtly downturned, and the shank angles upward from the transition, lending prominence to the bowl's firm heel and informing the profile's forward-jutting aesthetic.
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
