Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Bordeaux (621) (6mm) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-67882
The "621" is one of Savinelli's few bent Dublin designs and remains the most deeply bent rendition compared to the "611 KS" or "920 KS." In overall gesture, the "621" shares much in common with the Italian marque's "620" Oom Paul, only trading the upright, straight bowl for that of a flaring Dublin. Perfect for a hands-free smoke, the dramatic angle of the transition and the bent saddle stem provide comfortable balance when clenched.
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
