Savinelli: Punto Oro Classic Bordeaux (706) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-77867
Like the Bing's Billiard in their Favorites line, Savinelli's "706" is a trim design with an elongated stem for added sleekness. Whereas the Bing's Favorite features a slightly bent stem and stretched shank, this "706" maintains classic proportions at the stummel and an arrow straight, streamlined disposition all the way through the profile. The slender shaping keeps the piece lightweight, compensating for the added length and presenting a tall, narrow chamber. It's one of Savinelli's sveltest forms and fits in well to the classic end of the Italian marque'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 piece wears a red wine-tinged Bordeaux stain, offering a traditional aesthetic sure never to go out of style.-Truett Smith
