Italian Estates: Savinelli Punto Oro Sandblasted (315 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-37737
Savinelli's interpretation of the Prince, the "315 KS" provides all the plump, in-hand comfort of the shape, with more emphasis placed on the heel than classic English versions. The heel extends forward for a broader base and lower center of gravity, while the moderately sized shank leads to a willowy tapered stem, and the vertically compressed bowl presents a lower profile in silhouette. It maintains a staunch profile, making for a bolder rendition compared to traditional Anglo-French interpretations.
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 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.- Chuck Stanion
