Savinelli: Punto Oro Petite Sandblasted (920)
Product Number: 002-033-56797
Like the "904 KS," the "920 KS" is one of Savinelli's most striking and angular renditions of the bent Dublin. This piece hews closer to the classic English shape chart standard in its sinuous bend and curved transition, but the bowl continues the S-curve's momentum in its forward-urging posture. This particular Petite renditions maintains that same fluid gesture but renders it in a compact overall size for easy portability and lightweight appeal. Full of dynamism, the bowl tapers dramatically into a defined heel, matching with the angle of shank for a well-balanced composition that highlights Savinelli's distinct approach to traditional shapes.
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
