Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Smooth (209 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-73416
Though not the most eccentric of designs, Savinelli's "209 KS" deviates just enough from the norm to make for a memorable and individualistic shape. It's rooted in a bent Brandy/Billiard, with the bowl softly rounded for in-hand plumpness, but the heel is considerably more prominent, continuing the angled orientation of the shank and urging the profile forward. Such shaping cues — robust proportions and a particularly firm heel — are commonplace within Italian pipe making, imbuing this "209 KS" with a distinctly Italian aesthetic representative of Savinelli's shaping style.
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
