Savinelli: Punto Oro Classic Natural (122)
Product Number: 002-033-47007
Savinelli's "122" bent Pot seamlessly combines muscularity and elegance for a striking design — the broad, robust bowl being paired to a lithe, bent shank and stem combination. In keeping with the marque's signature Italian neoclassic approach to shaping, Savinelli has rendered the heel with firm, jutting disposition, while softening the shape's profile through the use of a gently downturned stem. Such a design cue gives the form a look that calls to mind the classic Prince shape in profile. The "122" is nearly identical to the marque's "121 KS" bent Pot, but the primary difference between the two is that the "122" here features a bowl with a more modest width, offering the shape's characteristically broad chamber but with a more compact presence.
The Punto Oro line is one of Savinelli's highest-quality series within its standard lineup, second only to the 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, the most notable distinction between the two versions lies in their drilling: Punto Oro Gold pipes are only produced to accommodate filters, while the Classic version also includes standard, filterless pipes. Presented here in a timeless, natural stain, this particular Punto Oro piece draws focus to the briar's natural grain pattern, highlighted by the expert finishing work of Savinelli's artisans.- Jeffery Sitts
