Savinelli: Punto Oro Classic Bordeaux (129) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-56928
Well on the shorter side of Savinelli's size spectrum, the "129" is a charmingly compact Billiard. What truly sets it apart from some of the Italian marque's other Billiard shapes is the use of a triangular shank — a signature Savinelli design element. It provides a striking juxtaposition when paired to a tall, poised Billiard bowl, like the one seen here. While it's fairly petite in regards to overall size, there's still plenty of muscularity throughout the proportions of this "129," with the firm, yet rounded lines of the shank providing some subtle sturdiness in hand.
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 red wine-tinged Bordeaux stain, offering a traditional aesthetic sure never to go out of style.- Jeffery Sitts
