Savinelli: Giubileo d'Oro Smooth Natural (128) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-39230
Savinelli's "128" Billiard is one of the marque's larger interpretations of the shape chart standard, the tall bowl commanding much of the profile's visual weight — a signature approach within Italian pipe making that's also a key aspect of Savinelli's immediately recognizable style. The bowl's prominence is further accentuated through the gradual taper of the arrow straight shank-and-stem combination. The "128" is notably longer and more muscular compared to the firm's "106" and "104" Billiards, while also being slightly stouter than their trim "107" design. This is an ideal choice for fans of classic shapes but who desire a pipe with a bit more substance all around.
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 example wears the line's smooth, Natural stain, highlighting the briar's natural grain in a traditional and vivid palette, and comes complete with a matching tamper.-Truett Smith
