Savinelli: Punto Oro Smooth Bordeaux (910 KS) (Legacy Stock) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68251
Like Savinelli's "904 KS" Dublin, the "910 KS" is a sleek, crisp-lined rendition of the classic shape, and it's produced less often than many designs on the Italian marque's standard shape chart. The bowl flares conservatively upward, and the most characteristic feature of the "910 KS" is the concave nature of the shank, flaring toward both transition and stem. Such a design cue lends the heel a slightly protruding disposition and the taper toward the middle of the shank is tastefully balanced by the likewise tapering lines of the streamlined mouthpiece.
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
