Savinelli: Punto Oro Classic Bordeaux (514 KS)
Product Number: 002-033-42177
Savinelli's "514 KS" bent Bulldog is a design we don't frequently see often outside of a few select series, but it's a striking shape. The form's characteristic beadlines are positioned low along the bowl's waistline, further accentuating its towering height and the rim's subtle, gradual taper. The diamond shank is noticeably lengthier compared to most Bulldog renditions, the ridgeline along the underside continuing into the bowl's base and giving it a firm heel. It fits in well to Savinelli's signature style, slightly dramatizing the classic shape chart standard — perfect for those drawn to traditionalism with a subtle twist.
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 red wine-tinged Bordeaux stain, offering a traditional aesthetic sure never to go out of style.- Jeffery Sitts
