Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Bordeaux (619 EX) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68124
One of the few Savinelli shapes to come only in EX size designation, the "619 EX" is an immense, bent rendition of the classic Foursquare Billiard. As such, both the bowl and shank are paneled for a firm, rigid, and structured aesthetic that aligns with classic English renditions of the form. This is a considerably large piece of house pipe proportions, with plenty of palm-filling substance and a generous chamber within.
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
