Italian Estates: Savinelli Punto Oro Sandblasted (824 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-35439
Even though Savinelli's shape chart is primarily comprised of designs that hew fairly close to traditional archetypes, the Italian marque also offers more creative renditions — those that combine the design characteristics of several classic pipe shapes. The "824 KS" is one such piece, pairing a Lumberman's elongated, oval shank and abbreviated saddle stem to a bold, Brandy-like bowl. What truly sets this design apart, though, is its slightly bent posture: The stem is subtly downturned, and the shank angles upward from the transition, lending prominence to the bowl's firm heel and informing the profile's forward-jutting aesthetic.
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 traditional, dark-stained sandblast, drawing focus to the briar's natural grain pattern, brought out with subtle texture thanks to the expert finishing work of Savinelli's artisans.-Truett Smith
