Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Sandblasted (701) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-49979
Showcasing Savinelli's typical, neoclassic shaping style, this "701" highlights the defining characteristics of the traditional Lovat: The Billiard bowl is lent added height thanks to the slender shank and trim transition, while the shank's elongated length and the abbreviated saddle stem leave little doubt as to whether or not this is a Lovat. It's a bolder, more dramatic take on the English shape chart standard, offering palm-filling substance and a crisp, eye-catching profile.
The Punto Oro and Punto Oro Gold series begin Savinelli's highest-quality lines within its standard lineup, topped by the prestigious 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, this particular Punto Oro Gold piece wears a traditional, dark-stained sandblast, drawing focus to the briar's natural grain pattern, brought out with subtle texture thanks to the expert finishing work of Savinelli's artisans.-Truett Smith
