Savinelli: Punto Oro Petite Bordeaux (202)
Product Number: 002-033-59468
Savinelli's "202" Apple is a streamlined, svelte, and classically inclined design, featuring a bulb of a bowl paired to an arrow straight shank-and-stem configuration. It's one of only a few straight Apple shapes offered by the Italian firm, the other primarily being their "207." In their standard varieties, the two forms differ most notably in regards to their proportions, the "202" being slightly longer and displaying a smaller bowl while the "207" tends to be a touch shorter in length and features a more robust presence. In this Petite version, the "202" maintains its typical length but decreases the bowl size for a more lightweight presence and quicker smoking sessions.
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
