Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Sandblasted (320 KS)
Product Number: 002-033-53372
Savinelli's "320 KS" is a thoroughly Italian take on the classic Author shape, pairing a plump, well-rounded bowl to an equally robust shank-and-stem combination. It's a properly full-bodied rendition, featuring soft, supple curves throughout its hearty proportions and bold, masculine lines. The "320 KS" is, in essence, a more substantial, muscular take on the Italian marque's other Author design, the "321 KS." Reassuringly stout in hand, and housing an impressively broad chamber, it's the perfect pipe to sit back and relax with — the epitome of a comfort pipe and considered a defining, signature shape among Savinelli's portfolio.
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.- Jeffery Sitts
