Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Bordeaux (316 EX) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68030
The primary feature of a Pot is its broad tobacco chamber, and the Savinelli "316 EX" certainly fulfills that purpose, boasting even larger dimensions than its KS-sized variant. Particularly wide at the top, the chamber is conical, aligning with the shaping of the bowl, while the lithe shank-and-stem combination adds tasteful elegance through its curve. It's a remarkably organic interpretation, offering a sweeping heel and softly rounded rim, and all with a subtle forward momentum to keep things lively.
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 but 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
