Savinelli: Punto Oro Sandblasted with Brass Band (401) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-67717
A svelte and slender straight Dublin, Savinelli's "401" presents a traditional form with Savinelli personality, including a bold heel that transitions into a low-set, straight shank and tapered mouthpiece. The flat rim contributes to the geometry and maintains a simple elegance, harmonizing with the lines of the bowl and shank as the eyes are continuously led forward. While this "401" does maintain Savinelli's bowl-centric, Italian neoclassic proportions, the style is more subtle here — the bowl more conservatively flared and the overall shaping hewing closely to traditional English style.
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 in early 2022 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.- Chuck Stanion
