Savinelli: Giubileo d'Oro Smooth Natural (104) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-56961
Savinelli's "104" shape designation corresponds to a Billiard design that showcases the Italian pipe making tradition's approach to classic English and French shapes. The basic Billiard form is maintained in the rigid, upright bowl; however, the proportions have been slightly altered as the shank and stem are a touch more slender and the bowl a tad taller. It makes for a dramatic visual effect and draws more attention to the bowl, while still preserving the shape's streamlined look in profile. The "104" also presents a trimmer alternative to the firm's more robustly proportioned Billiards, such as the "101" and "141 KS," while not sacrificing anything in terms of chamber depth.
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.- Jeffery Sitts
