Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Bordeaux (413 KS) (6mm) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-67867
The "413 KS" from Savinelli is a large rendition of the bent Dublin. The result is a profile similar to the "404" Zulu, but larger, with more curve to the shank-and-stem combination, and a stronger angle at the transition. This piece is also noticeably restrained through the shank, which appears quite diminutive in contrast to the tall, flaring bowl up front — a shaping cue that fits in well to Savinelli's Italian neoclassic style. As such, the bowl conforms effortlessly to the palm, while the sinuous bend provides for comfortable clenching.
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.- Chuck Stanion
