Savinelli: Punto Oro Sandblasted with Silver Army Mount (412 KS) (6mm) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-67709
Like the "401" Savinelli's "412 KS" is a fairly classic rendition of the traditional Dublin shape, the form arrow straight through the shank and stem, with the upright bowl flaring conservatively above. Where the two designs differ is in their sizes: The "412 KS," seen here, is considerably more robust and offers a deeper chamber. For fans of the Dublin who appreciate hearty substance, the "412 KS" is the perfect choice, while those who prefer a more svelte style will enjoy the "401."
Savinelli's Punto Oro and Giubileo d'Oro series comprise the upper echelons of the Italian marque's regular-production lineup. For decades, they've delighted pipe smokers with striking finishes and superlative grain, and this particular Punto Oro example celebrates Savinelli's historical renown: It's part of a selection of old-stock examples procured from the factory earlier this year and fashioned sometime between 1975 and 2005 — a rare array that we've distinguished as "Legacy Stock." Though all Legacy Stock pipes are part of the Punto Oro and Giubileo d'Oro series and are offered in either smooth or sandblasted finishes, they vary depending on their production era, with stain colors differing slightly and revealing the evolution of Savinelli's production over the years. This pipe is a chance to own a piece of Savinelli history, limited in supply and with only a few renditions of each shape available.-Truett Smith
