Savinelli Clark's Favorite Smooth

Got my morning checklist completed for me and now on to the blog for y'all. I saw a recipe on Pinterest this morning for potato florets and I have all the ingredients needed to make this scrumptious looking meal, so guess what's for supper? Yes, soup! Ha-ha! Just teasing, I can do this! Even if it doesn't turn out as beautiful as the picture, it will still be edible, so either way, it is a win.

Speaking of wins, how about today's pipe? The Savinelli Clark's Favorite in smooth. It comes in Rusticated and Smooth and I really liked the smooth better. As you may know by now, I am partial to a smooth finish, but some rusticated pieces have caught my eye instantly. I first saw this piece at a local tobacconist shop and loved the stem. It is slightly shorter than a full-size churchwarden and I had to think about it. I thought about it and thought about it and while looking at Savinelli's website one night, I saw it again and decided to pick it up.

This pipe is one of the most elegant shapes of the "Favorites" of this Clark Gable-inspired bent Billiard: long, lean, and highly relaxed of line. It's presented here in a walnut finish, contrasted by the warm glow of the colorful acrylic stem. That acrylic stem is truly magnificent. I, personally, feel that if the stem wasn't as beautiful as it is, I wouldn't have been interested in it. Those colors were such a good pairing for this style.

Here's the thing about this stem, no two are alike. As with all acrylic stems, they have these blocks or rods that are stretched and cut to work with each pipe. Being the swirls and patterns are different throughout the material, in turn, each stem comes out differently. If you don't particularly like the stem of one of them, the next one you may. I do love that about SmokingPipes.com is that whichever pipe you are looking at is the one you are getting. It is particularly nice when they have several of one style of pipe and can compare them and pick the perfect one for you.

The length is 7.41" and the height is 1.78". Officially, 8" is the length of a Churchwarden, so it barely misses the mark. The weight is a light 1.40 oz. and the outside diameter is 1.42". This can be used with or without a 6mm filter. I prefer the filter, however, whatever tickles your frickle works. It is such an easy hold and smokes gracefully. This is one that I enjoy during the summertime, outback relaxing catching a ray or two.

This is a Bent Billiard pipe. What does that mean, to call it a Bent Billiard? Well, it is actually two words that mean two separate meanings. You could have a Straight Billiard, as well. A "bent" is simply a catch-all term for a pipe bearing some degree of bend in the transition, shank, and/or stem. The bowl can vary in form for either straight or bent.

The term Billiard is probably the most ubiquitous of the pipe shapes. The Billiard has a cylindrical bowl, a shank that is equal in length to the height of the bowl and can wear any stem type while still remaining a Billiard.
