Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Limited Edition Sandblasted Venezia Stem (702) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-66259
One of Savinelli's trimmer straight Billiard renditions, the "702" features classic proportions and a compositional balance that likens it to vintage French and English pipes. The stummel bears similar dimensions to that of the Italian marque's "706," but while the "706" is fitted with a longer, tapered stem in line with the iconic Bing's Billiard shape, the "702" maintains a traditional length between stem and shank, furthering its classic appeal and timeless style.
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 is a limited-edition version paired to a cerulean-blue acrylic stem — the same acrylic that accented Savinelli's exclusive Venezia series — and wearing a traditional, dark-stained sandblast. Such a pairing highlights the Italian marque's proprietary, custom-sourced acrylic — combined with the stunning grain and expert finishing work of the prestigious Punto Oro series.-Truett Smith
