Savinelli: Giubileo d'Oro Smooth Natural (620) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-67771
Like the "614," the "620" from Savinelli is a traditional take on the Oom Paul, marked by a deep bend, upward-curling transition, and stretched heel. Where the two differ are in their bowl shapes — the "614" being more rounded and tapered, while the "620," found here, poses an upright, cylindrical profile. It makes for hearty proportions through the bowl and shank, and displays a tubular aesthetic not unlike Peterson's iconic shaping style, fitting into Savinelli's penchant for classic designs.
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
