Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Smooth (138) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-53202
The traditional Foursquare Billiard involves a square shank transitioning into a square-paneled bowl. Not so with Savinelli's "138." Instead, both the shank and bowl comprise eight facets for a seamless, octagonal nature as each ridgeline curves perfectly 90 degrees. Such a design cue makes for a softer heel and a sleeker profile that matches the pipe's elegant aesthetic and belies this pipe's structured aesthetic.
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
