Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Smooth (123) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-53202
The "123" bent Pot follows a similar general form as Savinelli's "122" bent Pot rendition. Both are less broad and muscular than the "121 KS," offering a more slender disposition and balanced sense of proportions compared to the neoclassic, bowl-centric shaping of the "121 KS." Where the "123" and "122" differ, though, is in their shanks: The "123" marked by a triangular cross section — a signature cue of the Italian marque that adds a touch of architectural style to this piece.
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 timeless, auburn stain, drawing focus to the briar's natural grain pattern, highlighted by the expert finishing work of Savinelli's artisans.-Truett Smith
