Savinelli: Giubileo d'Oro Smooth Brown (605) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-67812
One of Savinelli's more compact bent Billiard designs, the "605" features a tightly angled transition that calls to mind the Italian marque's "613" shape; however, it bears a bent Billiard's more rounded heel as opposed to the more pronounced and stretched, Oom Paul-like heel of the "613." Moreover, its proportions are much leaner, trading the extra-stout shank of the "613" for a more slender nature that gracefully urges upward into the demurely bent saddle stem. Timeless and elegant, the "605" is a practical interpretation of a deeply bent Billiard, offering smoking comfort in a convenient, on-the-go package.
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
