Italian Estates: Savinelli Punto Oro Bordeaux (904 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-33040
The "920 KS" and "904 KS" shapes are Savinelli's most striking bent Dublin renditions, posing especially dynamic and angular profiles. Presented here is the "904 KS," which offers a dramatically forward-urging stance, almost Zulu-like in the stem's elegant bend and the gentle flare through the transition into the bowl. Unlike the "920 KS," this piece features a protruding, rounded heel that dips below the shank's line to hint at the Acorn shape. This is one of Savinelli's most popular and distinct shapes, expanding upon the standard English form for a memorable, eye-catching piece all around.
The Punto Oro and Punto Oro Gold series begin Savinelli's highest-quality lines within its standard lineup, topped by the prestigious Giubileo d'Oro. Each Punto Oro pipe is fashioned from Mediterranean briar that's been aged for more than three years before passing ninety separate crafting and inspecting processes to ensure the strictest standards of quality — taking into consideration engineering, construction, and grain orientation. Only one tenth of all Savinelli pipes meet the Punto Oro's rigid criteria, making its pipes some of the Italian marque's most prized and collectible pieces. With a number of traditional finishes presented across the Punto Oro Gold and Punto Oro Classic lines, this particular Punto Oro piece wears a red wine-tinged Bordeaux stain, offering a traditional aesthetic sure never to go out of style.-Truett Smith
