Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Bordeaux (915 KS) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68111
The "915 KS" is an interesting shape from Savinelli, merging the distinct characteristics of several other designs. It features a flaring and cinched Dublin-meets-Hourglass bowl on the end of a Lumberman's elongated, oval shank and abbreviated saddle stem, the lines of the shank flaring toward the transition and seemingly continuing through the lower bowl to inform the heel's firm, forward-protruding stance. The unique form fits right into Savinelli's conventionally Italian neoclassic design aesthetic, with the bowl trumpeting boldly in profile and offering a generous chamber depth.
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
