Savinelli: Hercules Smooth (804 EX) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-74781
Savinelli's "804 KS" Canadian is an impressively lengthy interpretation of the classic English shape — combining a soaring bowl to an extended oval shank, then paired to a comparatively shorter, tapered stem, such height and substance increased even further in this EX-sized rendition. The sides of the shank are accented by a pair of firm yet understated ridgelines that help give the shape a sturdy presence in hand while subtly contributing some extra textural diversity to the composition. The tall bowl caters well to the Italian marque's signature neoclassic approach to traditional shapes as the bowl garners much of the overall visual focus in relation to the shank and stem. The KS-sized version of the "804" is also notably a larger, bolder sibling to Savinelli's "802" Canadian, offering a more substantial take on the classic shape, with this "804 EX" rendition making for an even more massive pipe.
Named after the legendary hero of Greek and Roman myth, the Hercules series is a line dedicated to Savinelli's massive Extraordinaire-sized briars, offering bold, muscular designs that are imbued with remarkably capacious chambers for those who prefer lengthy smoking sessions. Hercules was renowned for his immense strength and excellent endurance, overcoming seemingly impossible obstacles during his famous Twelve Labors and other various journeys. It's certainly a fitting name for this substantial Savinelli series and looks quite handsome here in a reserved walnut stain paired to a jet-black mouthpiece.-Truett Smith
