Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Bordeaux (607 KS) (6mm) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68097
Savinelli's "607 KS" is among the Italian marque's largest bent Billiard designs, rivaled only by the substantial proportions of the "616 KS." That said, it's still a considerably robust rendition of the timeless form, closely resembling the dimensions of Savinelli's "606 KS" shape, but here it trades a tapered stem for a saddle mouthpiece which further emphasizes its muscularity. The tobacco chamber is remarkably deep, and the downturned stem promises a comfortable hands-free smoking posture for those desiring a reliable jaw hanger.
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
