Savinelli: Punto Oro Classic Natural (636 KS)
Product Number: 002-033-60638
A slightly larger, more robust sibling to Savinelli's "626," the Italian marque's "636 KS" bent Apple features some additional mass lent to its shank and lower bowl. As a result, the proportions fall in line with classic interpretations, presenting an affably plump in-hand presence while the stem's quarter bend ensures a well-balanced clench. The "636 KS" isn't as overtly hearty as Savinelli's "642" or as trim as the "626," instead striking an ideal middle ground between the two designs and offering the best of both worlds.
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 timeless, natural stain, drawing focus to the briar's natural grain pattern, highlighted by the expert finishing work of Savinelli's artisans.- Jeffery Sitts
