Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Bordeaux (627) (6mm) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68229
The bent Egg is a rare shape within Savinelli's expansive portfolio, making the "627" a singular and unique design from the Italian marque. Moreover, it reveals Savinelli's signature design cue of fashioning shanks with distinctive attributes, whether paneled or shaped to a Reuleaux triangle. In the case of the "627," the shank is distinguished by a broad demeanor with crisp ridgelines defining the flanks for accenting rigidity that contrasts against the tall bowl's more smooth and softly rounded 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 in early 2022 but 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
