Italian Estates: Savinelli Giubileo d'Oro Smooth Natural Unica (127) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-36036
The "127" Billiard design from Savinelli is, essentially, a saddle-stemmed rendition of the Italian marque's "128" version. As such, it's one of their larger interpretations, and the saddle stem accentuates the stummel's presence even more. The tall bowl commands much of the profile's visual weight, and the "127" is notably longer and more muscular compared to Savinelli's "106" and "104" Billiards, while also being slightly stouter than their trim "107" design. Like the "128," this pipe is an ideal choice for fans of classic shapes but who desire a piece with a bit more substance all around and who favor saddle stems over tapered varieties.
The highest tier within Savinelli's standard lineup, the Giubileo d'Oro series presents the Italian marque's superlative pieces. Meaning "Golden Jubilee" in Italian, the Giubileo d'Oro series denotes Savinelli pipes par excellence, and the strict standards determining Giubileo d'Oro pieces mean that only 0.1% of Savinelli's total production is found worthy of the line's iconic three brass dot stem logo. As such, these pipes showcase choice grain patterns and exquisite finishes — from concisely defined sandblasts to gorgeously arrayed flame grain and birdseye. This particular Unica example wears the line's smooth, Natural stain, highlighting the briar's natural grain in a traditional and vivid palette, and is fitted to a colorful acrylic stem.-Truett Smith
