Savinelli: Giubileo d'Oro Smooth Brown (513 KS) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-67830
The Foursquare is a classic pipe shape, but it's most often rendered in straight configuration. Savinelli presents a bent version in the "513 KS" design. Like the traditional Foursquare, this piece offers the intriguing firmness of a paneled bowl and shank, but it angles the transition and turns the stem downward for a more balanced posture when clenched. Such a form retains the classic appeal of the pipe chart standard while subtly adding Savinelli's own creativity.
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 in early 2022 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
