Savinelli: Giubileo d'Oro Sandblasted (645 KS)
Product Number: 002-033-43208
Savinelli's "645 KS" is a wide, stout take on the bent Brandy, the bowl prioritizing breadth over height, yet still boasting a respectably deep chamber within. The bowl wears its waistline low before subtly tapering up toward the rim, while the transition offers ample room for the thumb to rest. Unlike the Italian marque's "628" bent Brandy, the "645 KS" is a low-slung take on the classic shape with the bowl more Apple-esque in its curvature, and it displays a greater degree of bend compared to the "144 KS." It's an ideal choice for pipe smokers who prefer robust, substantial designs that also remain balanced and lightweight enough to be clenched comfortably in the jaw.
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 sandblasted finish, highlighting the briar's natural grain in a traditional and textured palette, and comes complete with a matching tamper.- Jeffery Sitts
