Italian Estates: Savinelli Punto Oro Special Walnut Smooth (Iwan Ries) (506) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-34013
The Foursquare is an iconic pipe shape and one that's preferred by those who enjoy sturdy-sitting designs. Beloved as the ideal desk pipe, the Foursquare is a paneled straight Billiard marked by a square shank and faceted bowl for a firm, structured aesthetic. The motif is personified by Savinelli's "506" shape, hewing closely to traditional interpretations of the form with balanced proportions but an inherently muscular and bold disposition.
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. Less than two percent 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 was fashioned for the Iwan Ries shop and wears a timeless, auburn stain, drawing focus to the briar's natural grain pattern, highlighted by the expert finishing work of Savinelli's artisans.-Truett Smith
