Savinelli: Punto Oro Bing's Favorite Bordeaux Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-72053
The Favorites line from Savinelli presents long-stemmed designs inspired by those smoked by Clark Gable, Bing Crosby, and Ginger Rogers. Bing's Favorite is presented here — a take on the long-shanked, long-stemmed Billiards the celebrity was often seen smoking. Such a rendition has since become known as "Bing's Billiard," and Savinelli's version here stays true to its characteristic design cues.
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
