Savinelli: Luisa Fiammata Sandblasted (816 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-74708
Savinelli's "816 KS" shape combines elements of the classic Foursquare and an oval-shanked Billiard. The bowl remains traditional and not paneled like that of the Foursquare, and the shank, while paneled, is rectangular in cross section instead of square. Such a shaping cue makes for a more sleek and diminutive shank-and-stem combination, adding visual prominence to the firm-heeled bowl and accentuating this pipe's Italian neoclassic aesthetic. It's a generous design with plenty of chamber capacity and the added benefit of sitting upright on a flat surface.
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
