Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Smooth (144 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-61642
Essentially a saddle-stemmed version of the "145 KS," Savinelli's "144 KS" bent Brandy bears a similar bowl shape to the "628" bent Brandy rendition, featuring a tall, upward taper from above a voluptuous heel. Unlike the "628," however, the "145 KS" and "144 KS" are fitted to straight shanks, with only the stems slightly bent. It makes for a more upright posture that accentuates the bowl's height in profile, furthered even more by the slender saddle stem of this "144 KS."
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. Less than two percent 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 Gold piece wears a timeless, auburn stain, drawing focus to the briar's natural grain pattern, highlighted by the expert finishing work of Savinelli's artisans.-Truett Smith
