Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Bordeaux (707 KS) (6mm) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68242
The "707 KS" bent Billiard from Savinelli is a unique rendition of the classic form and readily recognizable as the work of the esteemed Italian marque. Savinelli's Italian neoclassic shaping style is highlighted at the bowl — characterized by added height and supported by a firm heel. Out back, the triangular shank is a distinctly Savinelli design cue that accents the profile with rounded yet firm ridgelines, while the slight bend of the abbreviated stem adds a gentle curve that contrasts against the bowl's more rigid uprightness.
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
