Savinelli, the world's No.1 selling pipe Ferrari have given the Italians a reasonable edge in the world of motoring but that's not all they strive at. Since 1876 Savinelli have kept the Italians at the pinnacle of the pipe manufacturing game! Putting the Italian legacy behind us for a minute if you where to look at the Savinelli range you could be forgiven for thinking they are a classic high end British made pipe. We have received a number of comments over the years from our high end pipe customers who believe the quality of the briar and the finish of Savinelli pipes exceed what is strongly regarded as the epitome of the pipe world and they don't demand the same price tag (No names mentioned as we are British through and through)
Savinelli Clark’s favorite 6mm Briar Pipe: There aren’t anywhere near enough Churchwarden pipes on the market to satisfy desire so when we came across Savinellis offerings we snapped them up without a moment's hesitation and the Clark’s favourite is something that really stands out from the crowd. They are a shorter than average churchwarden that bridges that gap and fills the desire for a cool smoking pipe without the length and weight of a full churchwarden. Teamed up with a 6mm filter system these make great, clean and cool smoking pipes. They are amde using the same quality Briar that we have come to know and love from the italian master craftsmen. One really nice feature we like and don’t often see on a churchwarden is the flat bottom. This enables the pipe to be balanced upright. Please note the word “balanced” due to the length of the stem they will fall over fairly easily if knocked.
The Clark’s favourite Smooth is the premium model in the Clark’s favourite range with a hand selected bowl for superior grain pattern and minimal visible flaws which is enhanced with a rich red stain for a truly sophisticated feel.
6mm Balsa wood filter Unique to Savinelli is their Balsa wood filter system. The shape does not form a seal in the bore of the pipe so allows an unrestricted full flavoured draw but the extremely porous and highly absorbent nature of the Balsa wood is very effective at removing moisture and impurities from the smoke. The filter can be removed for those who prefer a totally unrestricted full on smoke.
MARBLED STEMS: The marbled mouthpiece in this picture is a one off and is unlikely to be the exact mouthpiece you will receive. There is variation from pipe to pipe with substantial differences in colours, patterns and marbling.
