    Well.... oops Well this was one of the pipes I turned down in favor of the Ser Jacopo I recently purchased. But it's been gnawing at me, and I find myself returning to the site again and again and again to look at it. Each time, I'm sort of hoping someone would have purchased it. But each time, it's still there... mocking me....

    So! I accidentally hit the Buy button and poof! It should be on it's way to me shortly.

    Normally I go for the all smooth pipes, but this one has a partial blast that really set it apart from other offerings of a similar shape and either all smooth or all blasted. In this case, the partial blast really makes the pipe. Apart from the blast, which appears quite nice and sporting some ring grain, the smooth sections show off some lovely flame grain. This wonderfully shaped freehand also sports a very nice plateau top and shank end fitted with an aggressively shaped stem which adds a very nice modern flair. I would call it an Italian pipe with some serious Danish influence, as the dublin-esque freehand is so very similar to the Danish pipes that I love.

    How could I not go back for this?

    I believe this might be the last pipe I purchase for some time as I really need to focus on other things... a couple more racks, another nice tamper or two, tobacco..... uh... food

    I just hate it when that happens.

    Love that one. The contrast between blast and smooth is very fetching.

    I had the opportunity to buy the same pipe estate but unsmoked, same shape different finish, for EUR 80. I regret to this day that I didn't pull the trigger - it sold in a heart beat. Enjoy it, Anthony ..

    Nice!! I have an old Autograph, and it is a fine smoker. May this one give you years of quality service.

    That's a beauty brother! I have looked at the autographs a few times, just haven't bought one yet. That one looks quite sharp and I love the varying finish across it. You picked a good one! Enjoy the heck out it!

    Nice pipe, Anthony. I'm not a fan of Savinelli, but if I were to buy one it would most likely be an Autograph. Their blasted and partially blasted pipes are quite appealing.

    Thanks guys I decided when I pulled the trigger on this one that it's going to be my Black Frigate pipe. I normally don't dedicate a pipe to one single blend, but rather to blend type. But I decided to do that with the Ser Jacopo pipe I recently purchased, with a favorite aromatic, and this one will be Black Frigate.

    Beautiful pipe! I love Savinelli pipes. I would bet that you will be very surprised how light that pipe is once in hand.
    Enjoy!

    Very nice!

    I've been looking at a few Savinellis similar in shape but haven't made the commitment yet. Maybe when my wife goes back to work from maternity leave in another month...

    I don't know but I saw someone get a nice estate Sav Autograph I was watching for about $72 bucks on the bay. Looked like all it needed was a good cleaning.

    Well.... oops

    On a side note, all I keep imagining is Anthony doing the Dumfurble Flip Flap Frigate Dance to "Oops I did it again" while cavorting about his apartment eating unicorn ice cream and wearing his favorite pirate hat!

    And that's okay. A man can celebrate his finds however he sees fit, right Anthony?

    I think I'm also considering getting a new pipe some where down the road that I dedicate exclusively to BF. Just only makes sense to me.

    Thank you! I think I look at nearly every online retailer located all over the world while searching for that next great pipe. It's paid off for me quite a few times now.

    Very nice Anthony! If it should turn out that there is any heck in that pipe, enjoy it out of it.

    Some brands do better up-market (pricey) pipes than others. I'm not an up-market buyer mostly. It's become too pleasing to get wonderful smoking pipes on sale and discount. However, brands I would trust to give me extras in their pricier series are definitely Savinelli, with the Autorgraph as an example, and Nording in which I have several pipes representing the range of prices from an econo-Eriksen, through a signature autograph, to an expensive (to me) Nording zebra hunting pipe I received one Christmas from my wife. Other brands that do excellent pipes, I think you pretty much get the package when you shop for a pipe you can love on a budget.
