Savinelli: Luisa Fiammata Sandblasted (915 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-74547
The "915 KS" is an interesting shape from Savinelli, merging the distinct characteristics of several other designs. It features a flaring and cinched Dublin-meets-Hourglass bowl on the end of a Lumberman's elongated, oval shank and abbreviated saddle stem, the lines of the shank flaring toward the transition and seemingly continuing through the lower bowl to inform the heel's firm, forward-protruding stance. The unique form fits right into Savinelli's conventionally Italian neoclassic design aesthetic, with the bowl trumpeting boldly in profile and offering a generous chamber depth.
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
