Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Sandblasted (105)
Product Number: 002-033-49254
Savinelli's "105" is the Italian marque's trimmest Billiard design, its svelte proportions and streamlined shaping reminiscent of classic French renditions. Much like their "106" design, the "105" features a slender, arrow straight shank and stem configuration paired to a bowl that's around a Group 2 in size. However, the "105" is even more lightweight and caters to those who prefer diminutive, traditionally inclined pipes.
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 traditional, dark-stained sandblast, this particular Punto Oro Gold piece draws focus to the briar's natural grain pattern, brought out with subtle texture thanks to the expert finishing work of Savinelli's artisans.- Jeffery Sitts
