Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Bordeaux (320 EX) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68035
Savinelli's "320 EX" is a thoroughly Italian take on the classic Author shape, pairing a plump, well-rounded bowl to an equally robust shank-and-stem combination. Noticeably larger than its KS variant, this EX version is a properly full-bodied rendition, featuring soft, supple curves throughout its hearty proportions and bold, masculine lines. The "320 KS" is, in essence, a more substantial, muscular take on the Italian marque's other Author design, the "321," and in EX size, it's made all the more so. Reassuringly stout in hand, and housing an impressively broad chamber, it's the perfect pipe to sit back and relax with — the epitome of a comfort pipe and considered a defining, signature shape among Savinelli's portfolio.
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.-Truett Smith
