Savinelli: 145th Anniversary Punto Oro Smooth Natural (43/145) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68313
1876 was a year of breakthroughs: Thomas Edison patented the mimeograph, Alexander Graham Bell made the first telephone call, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky completed Swan Lake, Mark Twain published Tom Sawyer, and in Milan, Italy, Achille Savinelli opened one of the first shops exclusively focused on tobacco and smoking accessories. Today, 145 years after Achille opened his first shop, Savinelli pipes are among the most popular smoking instruments in the world, prized for their unique Italian flair, tasteful finishes, and quality craftsmanship. To celebrate such a phenomenal achievement, the marque released a two-part project to commemorate their 145th anniversary in 2021: a unique Virginia/Perique pipe tobacco and a special, commemorative pipe shape. Savinelli's 145th Anniversary pipe pays tribute to the marque's storied legacy with a classic, elegant bent Apple shape, reminiscent of the marque's popular "626" design, marked by a plump, rounded bowl and gentle bend. Accented by a broad sterling silver band bearing Savinelli's iconic logo, this 145th Anniversary pipe is serialized out of a total 145 crafted pipes and wears the warm finish of the Punto Oro line.
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. Only one tenth 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 timeless, natural stain, drawing focus to the briar's natural grain pattern, highlighted by the expert finishing work of Savinelli's artisans.- Andrew Wike
