Savinelli: Giubileo d'Oro Smooth Natural (603) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-67763
Savinelli's "601" and "603" bent Billiard designs are among the Italian marque's smallest renditions, outmatched only by Savinelli's Petite shape versions and the extra-small "609" bent Billiard. The "601" and "603" offer compact lengths and more diminutive bowls than Savinelli's KS and EX size designations, and presented here is the "603." It features essentially the same stummel as the "601," marked by a softly angled transition, upright bowl, and rounded heel, but it's fitted with a saddle stem as opposed to the tapered mouthpiece of the "601."
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.-Truett Smith
