I'm always on the lookout for pipes that I can offer in limited amounts that aren't readily available elsewhere. Recently, I had the opportunity to purchase 8 Savinelli Collection Pipes from the year 2000! These "Millennium Edition" pipes are Artisan-quality beauties that would be a cornerstone in any pipe smoker's collection. And they've been aged for more than 15 years!
While these pipes fall out of the "sweet spot" price-wise that is my focus, I simply couldn't let these incredible pipes pass me by! I'll be keeping one for my own collection, and the other 7 are now available on the site for $225, which is significantly less pricey than the current Collection 2016 edition sandblast pipes!
Savinelli Collection Pipes were first released in 1985, and the annual tradition continues today. Each year, one unique model is created and the year is etched onto a silver or gold plate on the shank. These are well-crafted pieces of art as well as exquisite smoking tools, and are highly regarded by collectors. The 2000 Collection Pipe features a gold plate that reads "2000 collection" and a gorgeous light shell sandblast, with a dark walnut finish. A lighter finished 1/2" band of briar is left smooth where the shank meets the stem, reminiscent of army mount pipes. The stem is an elegantly shaped durable black acrylic. These pipes come in a blue velvet lined presentation box along with a gray Savinelli branded pipe pouch and small certificate of authenticity.
These 2000 Collection pipes are excellent additions to your Savinelli collection, or simply as an exemplary representation of Savinelli in a more robust collection. In addition, they are perfect commemorative pieces to celebrate anything that happened in your life during that year: the birth of a child, an anniversary, or retirement. I'm very pleased to offer these pipes to you!
Keep 'em lit,
