Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Bordeaux (604 EX) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68119
Deeply bent with a correspondingly deep chamber, Savinelli's "604 KS" is a hearty, muscular take on the classic Oom Paul shape, and in this EX-sized rendition, it's lent even more mass and chamber depth. Unlike the curling heel and rounded bowl of the marque's "614," this "604 EX" features a firmer, broader base and a more upright, cylindrical style of bowl. It maintains the shape's signature deep bend and tightly knit transition, allowing for a more comfortably smoking posture, and filling the hand easily with its substantial size.
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
