Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Sandblasted (110) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-71952
Savinelli's "110" saddle-stemmed Billiard is a trim take on the shape chart standard and is noticeably more influenced by the English pipe making tradition compared to the Italian marque's more robust, bowl-centric designs. The "110" is quite similar in execution to Savinelli's "114 KS" but is slightly smaller in regards to its overall proportions and a touch lighter weight-wise. Such shaping cues allow the "110" to be a practical, versatile pipe that showcases the Italian marque's ability to render the Billiard in a variety of ways while always managing to maintain a classic, timeless appearance.
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
