Savinelli: Punto Oro Petite Natural (310) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-61418
A classic, utilitarian shape, the Poker is an inherently practical design, with a character that makes it perfect for all smoking settings. Savinelli's "310 KS" is an iconic rendition of the form. Here in this Petite rendition, the overall size is reduced for a more lightweight presence and easier pocketability, and the typically robust bowl is more balanced of proportion in relation to the shank and saddle stem. Canted forward, the bowl is balanced with a flat heel so the pipe can sit easily, while the rounded rim adds an accenting design element that provides a little more vertical presence.
The Punto Oro line is one of Savinelli's highest-quality series within its standard lineup, second only to the 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, the most notable distinction between the two versions lies in their drilling: Punto Oro Gold pipes are only produced to accommodate filters, while the Classic version also includes standard, filterless pipes. Presented here in a timeless, natural stain, this particular Punto Oro piece draws focus to the briar's natural grain pattern, highlighted by the expert finishing work of Savinelli's artisans.- Chuck Stanion
