Savinelli: Giubileo d'Oro Smooth Natural (673 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-65643
The "673 KS" shape is Savinelli's take on the iconic bent Bulldog design. While the overall profile remains true to the traditional English shape chart standard — marked by a paneled shank and tapered rim — the Italian marque has imbued it with their own stylized aesthetic. Most notably, the shank is triangular instead of diamond in cross section, a signature Savinelli shaping cue, and the bowl features some added plumpness about the base before tapering slightly toward the rim above the waist. It makes for a distinctly recognizable Savinelli pipe, replete with a substantial voluptuousness in hand, while still maintaining a strong degree of classic appeal.
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
