Savinelli: Punto Oro Classic Natural (316 KS)
Product Number: 002-033-47213
The primary feature of a Pot is its broad tobacco chamber, and the Savinelli "316 KS" certainly fulfills that purpose. Particularly wide at the top, the chamber is conical, aligning with the shaping of the bowl, while the lithe shank and stem combination adds tasteful elegance through its curve. It's a remarkably organic interpretation, offering a sweeping heel and softly rounded rim, and all with a subtle forward momentum to keep things lively.
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.- Chuck Stanion
