Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Bordeaux (430 KS) (6mm) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68189
A Brandy with subtle Volcano-like flourishes, Savinelli's "430 KS" is an older rendition no longer found on the Italian marque's standard-production shape chart. The bowl reveals a steady upward taper to the rim, and the base's breadth is wrapped by a crisp ridgeline that separates the rounded heel from the more rigid stance of the bowl. Said ridgeline continues through the sides of the oval shank, continuing the crisp motif through the stem before transitioning into a demurely bent tapered stem for an elegant, streamlined disposition.
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
