Savinelli: ***Punto Oro Gold Smooth (603) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-65315
Savinelli's "601" and "603" bent Billiard designs are among the Italian marque's smallest renditions, outmatched only by Savinelli's Petite shape versions and the extra-small "609" bent Billiard. The "601" and "603" offer compact lengths and more diminutive bowls than Savinelli's KS and EX size designations, and presented here is the "603." It features essentially the same stummel as the "601," marked by a softly angled transition, upright bowl, and rounded heel, but it's fitted with a saddle stem as opposed to the tapered mouthpiece of the "601."
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
