Savinelli: Punto Oro Churchwarden Natural (921)
Product Number: 002-033-53601
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 line is one of Savinelli's highest-quality series within its standard lineup, second only to the 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, the most notable distinction between the two versions lies in their drilling: Punto Oro Gold pipes are only produced to accommodate filters, while the Classic version also includes standard, filterless pipes. Presented here in a timeless, natural stain, this particular Punto Oro piece draws focus to the briar's natural grain pattern, highlighted by the expert finishing work of Savinelli's artisans.-Truett Smith
