Savinelli: Punto Oro Petite Sandblasted (402) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-64495
The Savinelli "402" is a small Belge shape — rendered most often in Savinelli's Petite size designation — and its proportions have remained consistently petite and lightweight over the years. Its sinuous and lithe attitude complements the dramatic forward cant of the bowl, and the undercurve of heel and bowl present a steady curvature that travels up the far side of the bowl for the impression of a single, adroit line. Based on the design of clay pipes from earlier eras, the "402" offers a traditional smoking experience but with more practical, pocket-friendly portability.
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 traditional, dark-stained sandblast, drawing focus to the briar's natural grain pattern, brought out with subtle texture thanks to the expert finishing work of Savinelli's artisans.- Chuck Stanion
