Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Brown (404) (6mm) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-67924
A Zulu, Woodstock, or Yachtsman, depending on what traditional shape chart you're inclined toward, Savinelli's "404" features a subtle, elegant bend in the shank-and-stem arrangement, and smooth, gradual curves at the transition for a seamless connection to the bowl. That bowl rises in a slight forward cant, more upright than the traditional Zulu form, but still displaying the Dublin-like flare toward the rim, resulting in a remarkably easy grip in hand.
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 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.- Chuck Stanion
