Savinelli: Punto Oro Churchwarden Bordeaux (921)
Product Number: 002-033-50242
Similar to Savinelli's "920 KS" design, the "921" is a sweeping take on the bent Dublin, the transition seamlessly curved for an elegant profile that rises gently into the bowl's strong flare. Such shaping lends the "921" a Danish-style softness and a striking sense of visual dynamism — the momentum offered by the latter accentuated further by the long, lithe Churchwarden stem.
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 piece wears a red wine-tinged Bordeaux stain, offering a traditional aesthetic sure never to go out of style.-Truett Smith
