Savinelli: Punto Oro Churchwarden Bordeaux (202) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-67480
Savinelli's "202" Apple is a streamlined, svelte, and classically inclined design, featuring a bulb of a bowl paired to a sleek shank and stem configuration. It's one of only a few straight Apple shapes offered by the Italian firm, the other primarily being their "207." The two versions differ most notably in regards to their proportions. In standard size, the "202" is slightly longer, displaying a smaller bowl while the "207" tends to be a touch shorter in length and features a more robust presence. Here, though this "202" has been stretched to Churchwarden dimensions, with a slight bend to the stem offering elegant balance.
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 piece wears a red wine-tinged Bordeaux stain, offering a traditional aesthetic sure never to go out of style.-Truett Smith
