Savinelli: Giubileo d'Oro Smooth Natural (504) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-67758
Traditional English shaping fuses with Italian style and design cues in Savinelli's "504" Bulldog. The bowl and heel garner much attention, as expected with Italian neoclassic design, with the bowl rising tall above the beefy shank. The waistline is less portly, though, maintaining a trim, regal profile with mid-set beadlines or ridgeline and graceful tapering above and below. Crisp ridgelines define the shank-and-stem combination and meet the bowl with affable cheeking in this traditional composition.
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
