Savinelli: Punto Oro Sandblasted (811 KS)
Product Number: 002-033-54340
Like Savinelli's "315 KS" Prince, the "811 KS" displays a slightly angled transition and downturned stem, making for a lithe, elegant profile. This piece, though, fits a tall Billiard bowl on the end in place of the Prince's squat, Apple-like form — this particular Billiard being more slender and svelte than many of the Italian marque's other iterations. It's one of Savinelli's more streamlined pieces, full of sleek dynamism and offering a lightweight presence and classic shaping style overall.
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 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.-Truett Smith
