Italian Estates: Savinelli Punto Oro Smooth (207) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-34934
Savinelli's "207" Apple is one of their more traditionally inclined and noticeably English-inspired designs, defined by its broad, plump bowl and an arrow-straight shank-and-stem arrangement. It's also one of the few straight Apple shapes offered by the Italian marque, the other primarily being their "202." Where the two versions differ is in their proportions: The "207" tends to be a touch shorter in length but features a larger bowl while the "202" is slightly longer and trimmer, displaying a smaller bowl up front.
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 timeless, auburn stain, drawing focus to the briar's natural grain pattern, highlighted by the expert finishing work of Savinelli's artisans.-Truett Smith
