Italian Estates: Savinelli Punto Oro Smooth (9001) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-35236

Though stamped with "9001," this piece most closely resembles Savienlli's "901" shape. Savinelli's "901" is an Opera pipe; that is, a pipe whose bowl is oval to better fit into the pocket of a tuxedo. However, it's available in more standard length, as opposed to the more pocket friendly size the original design intended. The horizontally compressed, rounded bowl of the "901" is popular with or without intent to pocket carry, though. With a forward-jutting heel for a sturdier silhouette, all edges are rounded on the oval bowl, which sits at the end of a round shank, combining curvaceous appeal with mathematical precision. It's a shape that reminds us of times when a gentleman would never be without his pocket watch, handkerchief, and Opera pipe.

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 Gold 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.
