Savinelli: Hercules Smooth (510 EX) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-77047
The largest straight Bulldog on Savinelli's shape chart, the "510 KS" is a bold rendition that's made even more so here in EX size designation. While catering to classic English shaping standards, this "510 EX" adds extra height to the bowl and presents a strongly tapered, angular presence above the shape's characteristic, equatorial beadlines or ridgeline. It's an inherently masculine design, marked by hard, rigid lines through the diamond shank and stem and muscular proportions throughout, catering to appreciators of traditional shapes rendered in robust style.
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
