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.
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.
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.
What a grain!
The entire bowl and the shank display an incredibly tight straight grain.
Naturally, the mirror-smooth inside of the bowl shows the same tight straight grain, confirmed by the birdseye pattern on the rim.
The artistry of the designer:
The shank is cut at an angle to match the grain on each side of the pipe.
And here’s something new – the inside rim of the bowl is bevelled for more comfortable packing and lighting.
And it stands alone.
“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.
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.
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.
BRIAR LINE – BLACK SANDBLAST
Black sandblast? Not really.
The final polishing develops a rich burgundy glint to the peaks of the deeply sandblasted finish.
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.
