Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Sandblasted (321) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-65946
Essentially a scaled-down version of their beloved "320" design, Savinelli's "321" Author maintains the form's charmingly plump curves and stout proportions, but alters the dimensions to make the full-bodied shape more compact and pocket-friendly. Shape-wise, the "321" is identical to the "320," but with a slightly smaller bowl and an abbreviated shank. It's an ideal choice for those who like the robustness of the Author but seek a design that's better suited for on-the-go needs.
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 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.-Truett Smith
