Savinelli: Punto Oro Classic Bordeaux (812) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-61611
Exemplifying Savinelli's creative approach to classic shapes, the "812" is, in essence, a bent Canadian — interpreting the English shape chart standard through a more dramatic, whimsical lens. The stummel remains rooted in tradition, with the elongated, oval shank giving way to an upright Billiard bowl. By subtly bending the abbreviated stem, though, Savinelli has effectively accentuated the firm heel at the fore and given the transition a more angled appearance in profile. Furthermore, the downturned mouthpiece balances out the long form for a more comfortable clench and accents the sleekness of the shank through its elegant curve.
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.-Truett Smith
