Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Sandblasted (513 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-66510
The Foursquare is a classic pipe shape, but it's most often rendered in straight configuration. Savinelli presents a bent version in the "513 KS" design. Like the traditional Foursquare, this piece offers the intriguing firmness of a paneled bowl and shank, but it angles the transition and turns the stem downward for a more balanced posture when clenched. Such a form retains the classic appeal of the pipe chart standard while subtly adding Savinelli's own creativity.
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
