Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Sandblasted (111 KS) (6mm) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68045
A classically inclined, deep-chambered rendition of the timeless Billiard, Savinelli's "111 KS" is a bold take on the shape chart standard and is proudly Italian in its execution. The towering bowl commands much of the shape's visual weight, paired to a comparatively slimmer, round shank and tapered mouthpiece. The "111 KS" is closely related to the marque's "104" Billiard, with the primary difference being that this "111 KS" is slightly longer and contains more muscular proportions throughout. Such features are ideal for fans of traditional pipe designs who also prefer an arrangement that offers more chamber depth for longer smokes and a substantial presence 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 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
