Savinelli: Punto Oro Sandblasted (824 KS) (6mm) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-67854
Even though Savinelli's shape chart is primarily comprised of designs that hew fairly close to traditional archetypes, the Italian marque also offers more creative renditions — those that combine the design characteristics of several classic pipe shapes. The "824 KS" is one such piece, pairing a Lumberman's elongated, oval shank and abbreviated saddle stem to a bold, Brandy-like bowl. What truly sets this design apart, though, is its slightly bent posture: The stem is subtly downturned, and the shank angles upward from the transition, lending prominence to the bowl's firm heel and informing the profile's forward-jutting aesthetic.
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 Punto 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
