Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Natural with Silver (613) (6mm) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-67909
A comfortably bent saddle stem is paired to a full-bodied bowl in this "613" bent Billiard from Savinelli, offering a similar profile to that of the "614" Oom Paul but with a softer S-curve. The shank is well defined and muscular, while the transition is almost that of an Oom Paul — very high-set, yet still well differentiating the shank and bowl. Meanwhile, the heel is broad, echoing the shank's stoutness and offering a firm base from which rises the softly curved bowl. Balanced for comfort when clenched and also fitting substantially in hand, this "613" is a versatile pipe whose shaping does well to represent Savinelli's signature take on classic designs.
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
