Savinelli: Punto Oro Sandblasted (677 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-41518
A bent Billiard with a supple, Brandy-like taper toward the rim, Savinelli's "677 KS" is a compact yet full-bodied take on the classic English shape. Per the Italian marque's shaping conventions, Savinelli has elaborated on the standard design, adding mass to the base and transition with extra height and taper lent to the bowl, all paired to one of their signature triangular shanks. With plenty of chamber but in a convenient overall size, this "677 KS" maintains a traditional profile imbued with just enough accenting touches to make it the distinctive work of Savinelli.
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 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
