Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Smooth (624) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68483
Overall, the "624" bent Bulldog from Savinelli maintains a highly traditional form, both in shaping cues and relative proportions. That said, it also features a contrasting blend of softness and rigidity. Through the diamond shank, the lines are crisp and firm; at the bowl, though, the design is softened a touch, trading the Bulldog shape's conventional beadlines for a rounded, supple ridgeline at the waist. That softness is matched by the shank and stem's gentle, languid bend, while the bowl offers a comfortable substance in hand.
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 timeless, auburn stain, drawing focus to the briar's natural grain pattern, highlighted by the expert finishing work of Savinelli's artisans.-Truett Smith
