Savinelli: Giubileo d'Oro Smooth Natural (315 KS) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-67753
Savinelli's interpretation of the Prince, the "315 KS" provides all the plump, in-hand comfort of the shape, with more emphasis placed on the heel than classic English versions. The heel extends forward for a broader base and lower center of gravity, while the moderately sized shank leads to a willowy, tapered stem, and the vertically compressed bowl presents a lower profile in silhouette. It maintains a staunch profile, making for a bolder rendition compared to traditional Anglo-French interpretations.
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 Giubileo d'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.- Chuck Stanion
