Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Sandblasted (202) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-75685
Savinelli's "202" Apple is a streamlined, svelte, and classically inclined design, featuring a bulb of a bowl paired to an arrow straight shank-and-stem configuration. It's one of only a few straight Apple shapes offered by the Italian firm, the other primarily being their "207." The two versions differ most notably in regards to their proportions. The "202" is slightly longer, displaying a smaller bowl while the "207" tends to be a touch shorter in length and features a more robust presence.
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
