Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Bordeaux (502) (6mm) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68192
Crisp and firm of line, this "502" Foursquare from Savinelli displays a bold, imposing silhouette. The square shank makes for a firm heel and enables sturdy sitting while the paneled bowl enforces the piece's rigidity, the slightly rounded corners adding just a touch of softness in hand. It's a robust and stoic rendition of the classic English and French archetype, fitting well into Savinelli's rather traditional shaping style and housing a generous chamber.
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
