Savinelli Prestige Collection 2016
A brilliant example of skill and artistry - varying the depth of sandblasting from light through to medium-deep according to the grain of the bowl; the smooth rim is echoed in the briar link between the shank and the mouthpiece.
The mirror-smooth inside of the bowl shows the tight straight grain, confirmed by the birdseye pattern on the rim.
The small polished panel on the underside of the bowl allows the pipe to balance on its own – clever and convenient.
6mm balsa option.
Completely handmade, unique and unrepeatable - bearing the signature of Achille Savinelli. These exclusive pipes, which all Collectors covet, are carved by only a few skilled workers from the finest briar blocks personally selected by Giancarlo Savinelli, great grandson of the Founder, who currently heads the company.
From the Savinelli website:
This rare, unique and irreplaceable pipe, is shaped from the raw material following the grain and the “fiammatura” (“flame”), which Mother Nature has put at our disposal, according to the artistic mood of our master craftsmen. The wood is natural and the shape is unique for each piece. The name “Autograph” was created from the handwritten signature of Achille Savinelli Senior printed on the mouthpiece.
These pipes are created according to the characteristics of the raw material: the briar, and as a consequence their shapes are affected by the necessity and the creativeness. Practically they are all unique.
Savinelli Autograph Classic Sandblast
Sale Price R3530.70
Now here’s an unusual shape – but how practical.
Fingers fit snugly around the ridge which is cleverly shaped to fit either hand.
The shaping allows the bowl to lie comfortably at a slight angle on either side.
Now look at the grain:
The inside of the bowl tells you that it is straight all the way up, and tight with it.
The sandblasted outside of the bowl displays this grain so beautifully, a joy just to look at.
Sale Price R3530.70
Did you ever see anything so stylish?
The semi-square, rounded top, shank just flows into the hand-cut mouthpiece, with a hollow on each side following the line of the shank.
The grain too contributes: beautifully flared; you can confirm by looking at the inside of the bowl.
And it is so light – a real tribute to the quality of the briar and the curing.
Sale Price R4770.00
This is an intriguing pipe.
In one way it can look as if a textured rough cover has been fitted over part of the bowl.
There is even a fine ridge along the edge of the covered section.
But what has actually happened is that the whole pipe was sandblasted, with the front panel and the sides of the shank carefully polished removing the surface sandblasting in order to display the lovely grain.
The Free Styling between the smooth and the sandblasted areas follow the grain which warrants the Autograph status.
Sale Price R4770.00
Simply described by Savinelli as a Free Style Autograph pipe.
To my eye it is a square-shanked, sloping 4 panelled Dublin with incredible deep sandblasted sides, and striking Straight Grain polished panels front and back.
The clean, polished inside of the bowl confirms the coverage of the Straight Graiin around the whole bowl.
The trimmed inner rim of the bowl adds a nice neat touch to the overall sandblasted Birdseye top of the bowl.
And it stands alone.
Savinelli Autograph Smooth
Here we are admiring pone of the very few pipes to carry the stamped Savinelli signature.
Glorious Straight and slightly twisting Flame grain cover the whole surface of this Signature pipe.
As described by Giancarlo Savinelli, who personally selects these pipes, they are hand-designed, unique and unrepeatable.
An exceptionally elegant pipe, with a bevelled rim to the bowl for easy packing.
A beautiful example of how the tight hard wood is enhanced
by the darker streaks
in this Flame Grain pattern.
The brown Cumberland mouthpiece continues the brown briar tone to the whole pipe. Weight 52g
“Briar Line” is a new series of ‘free hand’ pipes, shaped by hand, with a superior quality of briar, like the Autograph. The shapes are modern and attractive, and a little bit smaller compared to the traditional Autograph; they are decorated with a ring made of maple wood on the mouthpiece.
On the stem of the bowl is printed the signature of Giancarlo Savinelli.
On the mouthpiece is a new silver Savinelli logo.
BRIAR LINE SMOOTH, ALMOST NATURAL FINISH
Just enough stain for you to appreciate the fine grains.
Sale Price R6456.00
What an elegant shape,
and good for the hand too.
And the grain is superb – flame grain all around the bowl and up through the shank, rising from a beautiful tight birdseye grain
at the base of the bowl.
The saddle is set at a diagonal which contributes to the elegance of the hand cut mouthpiece.
Sale Price R6456.00
A lovely flame grain on two sides of the bowl, with birdseye front and back.
The shank has been specially carved
to make the most of the grain.
Not wanting to break the line of the shank and mouthpiece, the mouthpiece is tapered on the top.
But saddle underneath so that the lip is thinner for extra comfort in the mouth.
Sale Price R2910.00
This elegant Freehand pipe has not deviated too far from the classis 626 shape in the Savinelli standard collection. But just enough to make the most of the grain.
The light sandblasting on one side of the bowl shows Straight Grain which is confirmed as it leads into the polished front of the bowl.
Moving across this front panel, a little more harder wood runs into tighter almost straight grain. Just check the inside of the bowl.
The muted off-white ring fitted to the mouthpiece, rather than a bright white band, is a nice touch and marks the pipe as part of the Briar Line range.
The flattened rusticated base panel allows this pipe to be free-standing. The Straight Grain is clearly visible on both the outside and the inside of the clean bowl. The light coloured ring on the mouthpiece softens the sharp visual colour change from brown to black – a nice touch.
Sale Price R2910.00
BRIAR LINE – BLACK SANDBLAST
Black sandblast? Not really.
The final polishing develops a rich burgundy glint to the peaks of the deeply sandblasted finish.
Sale Price R2700.00
A beautiful grain all over the delicately shaped bowl which curves gracefully into the rim.
Typical of the Savinelli touch is the almost triangular stem – with a perfectly distinct edge even on the sandblasted finish.
In this case the edge is set low on the shank, creating a flat base, and a smooth flow from the base of the bowl into the mouthpiece.
These beautifully designed braai tongs are ideal for most types of food over the open fire or gas grill. Be the envy of your friends and the talk of the campsite with your Butte Torch Tongs®. Conceived and designed in Cape Town, South Africa by a bunch of enthusiastic braaiers.
