Savinelli: Punto Oro Gold Sandblasted (620) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-75867
Like the "614," the "620" from Savinelli is a traditional take on the Oom Paul, marked by a deep bend, upward-curling transition, and stretched heel. Where the two differ are in their bowl shapes — the "614" being more rounded and tapered, while the "620," found here, poses an upright, cylindrical profile. It makes for hearty proportions through the bowl and shank, and displays a tubular aesthetic not unlike Peterson's iconic shaping style, fitting into Savinelli's penchant for classic designs.
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
