Savinelli: Punto Oro Classic Natural (320 KS)
Product Number: 002-033-47876
Savinelli's "320 KS" is a thoroughly Italian take on the classic Author shape, pairing a plump, well-rounded bowl to an equally robust shank and stem combination. It's a properly full-bodied rendition, featuring soft, supple curves throughout its hearty proportions and bold, masculine lines. The "320 KS" is, in essence, a more substantial, muscular take on the Italian marque's other Author design, the "321 KS." Reassuringly stout in hand, and housing an impressively broad chamber, it's the perfect pipe to sit back and relax with — the epitome of a comfort pipe and considered a defining, signature shape among Savinelli's portfolio.
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
