Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Bordeaux (110) (6mm) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68163
Savinelli's "110" saddle-stemmed Billiard is a trim take on the shape chart standard and is noticeably more influenced by the English pipe making tradition compared to the Italian marque's more robust, bowl-centric designs. The "110" is quite similar in execution to Savinelli's "114 KS" but is slightly smaller in regards to its overall proportions and a touch lighter weight-wise. Such shaping cues allow the "110" to be a practical, versatile pipe that showcases the Italian marque's ability to render the Billiard in a variety of ways while always managing to maintain a classic, timeless appearance.
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
