Savinelli: Punto Oro Sandblasted (704) (6mm) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68067
Representing the more classic end of Savinelli's shaping spectrum, the "704" is a thoroughly traditional take on the standard Liverpool form. It's one of the Italian marque's only Liverpool renditions and shares, essentially, the same stummel as their "701" Lovat — the two designs differing only in their stem configurations. The Liverpool's abbreviated, tapered mouthpiece is found here, continuing the elongated shank's sleekness to the button. Elegant and streamlined, this "704" is perfect for those drawn to iconic, timeless pipe shapes.
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
