Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Smooth (345 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-42413
A unique shape for Savinelli, the "345 KS" presents a plump Brandy bowl with a firm base, but foregoes the usual Italian design cue of a bowl-centric, neoclassic composition, maintaining more traditional lines and proportions. The heel is quite broad and permits the piece to sit upright on a flat surface. The transition is soft and minimizes the cheeking of the bowl, lilting more organically from bowl to shank, and that shank leads to a trailing tapered mouthpiece for a sleek-lined profile. Low and broad, and expertly executed, the "345 KS" Brandy displays both Italian charm and traditional proportions with its own unique style.
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 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.- Chuck Stanion
