Savinelli, the worlds 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 were 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 St Nicholas Briar Pipes: The Savinelli St Nicholas combines an evocative festive styling with a classic dressy feel. Savinellis 2021 St Nicholas offering presents some of their most iconic shapes in an extra glossy, extra dark brown rusticated finishing. The beautifully glittery, pearlescent stem alternates light and dark green colouring reminiscent of a Christmas tree. This is then decorated with two golden rings (not 5?!) that enclose a white acrylic band. This results in a beautiful Italian briar with a traditional aesthetic. The 606, in true Billard style, boasts a high and spacious burning chamber. A super classic shape that is always appreciated.
6mm Balsa wood filter Unique to Savinelli is their Balsa wood filter system. The triangular 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. Savinelli include an adaptor for those who prefer a totally unfiltered smoke.
