Savinelli: Punto Oro Classic Natural (613) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-45596
A comfortably bent saddle stem is paired to a full-bodied bowl in this "613" bent Billiard from Savinelli, offering a similar profile to that of the "614" Oom Paul but with a softer S-curve. The shank is well defined and muscular, while the transition is almost that of an Oom Paul — very high-set, yet still well differentiating the shank and bowl. Meanwhile, the heel is broad, echoing the shank's stoutness and offering a firm base from which rises the softly curved bowl. Balanced for comfort when clenched and also fitting substantially in hand, this "613" is a versatile pipe whose shaping does well to represent Savinelli's signature take on classic designs.
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 timeless, natural finish, drawing focus to the briar's natural grain pattern, highlighted by the expert finishing work of Savinelli's artisans.- Chuck Stanion
