Savinelli: Punto Oro Sandblasted with Brass Band (125) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-67713
Savinelli's "125" straight Pot is a long, lean rendition, the robust bowl garnering much of the visual attention by being paired with a comparatively trimmer shank-and-stem arrangement. It forgoes the paneled shank seen on the Italian marque's "512 KS" Pot design, opting instead for a round shank and increasing the bowl's height — affording it a deeper chamber. The "125" is also a lengthier, more muscular counterpart to the firm's "109" Billiard, making such a design perfect for fans of the broad-bowled shape that prefer more bowl to wrap their fingers around.
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
