Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Sandblasted (412 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-69353
Like the "401" Savinelli's "412 KS" is a fairly classic rendition of the traditional Dublin shape, the form arrow straight through the shank and stem, with the upright bowl flaring conservatively above. Where the two designs differ is in their sizes: The "412 KS," seen here, is considerably more robust and offers a deeper chamber. For fans of the Dublin who appreciate hearty substance, the "412 KS" is the perfect choice, while those who prefer a more svelte style will enjoy the "401."
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
