Savinelli's "311 KS" Poker is a resolute, yet dynamic take on the classic utilitarian shape characterized by the bowl's pronounced forward cant and succinct saddle stem displaying the lightest hint of downward turn. Its sturdy sitting capability makes it the perfect desk pipe while the crisply chamfered rim echoes the firm aesthetic of the defined transition and cylindrical bowl. It's also a slightly more compact offering compared to the Italian marque's other Poker design, the "310 KS," which displays a raised, rounded rim and a slightly longer downturned stem. While the "311 KS" is somewhat downsized, it certainly doesn't sacrifice anything in regards to chamber depth or its charming practicality.
Savinelli's limited-production and retro-inspired Flambé series celebrates this signature Italian finish through a dense rustication and a deep, red-brown stain that darkens toward the rim, solidifying the finish's Italian identity. The Flambé name denotes the stain's recognizable gradient, meaning "flamed" or "blazed" in French.
