Savinelli: Punto Oro Classic Natural (624 KS)
Product Number: 002-033-49389
Overall, the "624 KS" bent Bulldog from Savinelli maintains a highly traditional form, both in shaping cues and relative proportions. That said, it also features a contrasting blend of softness and rigidity. Through the diamond shank, the lines are crisp and firm; at the bowl, though, the design is softened a touch, trading the Bulldog shape's conventional beadlines for a rounded, supple ridgeline at the waist. That softness is matched by the shank and stem's gentle, languid bend, while the bowl offers a comfortable substance in hand.
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.-Truett Smith
