Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Sandblasted (703 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-54359
The "701" and "703 KS" shapes are Savinelli's interpretations of the classic Lovat, displaying the same general combination of Billiard bowl, elongated shank, and abbreviated saddle stem, but they vary in their proportions, catering to different pipesmokers' preferences. Seen here is the "703 KS," which increases the overall size of the "701" and adds more muscularity to the stretched shank. With more chamber depth and added overall length, it's an ideal choice for those interested in a larger Lovat, the design doing well to exemplify Savinelli's signature style — maintaining a traditional English aesthetic but dramatizing the proportions.
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.-Truett Smith
