Technical perfection
The best-designed pipe
on the market.
Link to
Savinelli Classics


Launched in 1981, it had taken several years of research into the negative points of existing system pipes, in order to improve on them. Perseverance paid off - by combining trap and filter, and enlarging the smoke hole, Savinelli achieved the "Dry System", which in our opinion is the best answer to "Wet Smoking" so far developed.
Especially for new pipesmokers, the Savinelli Dry System pipe incorporates everything needed to provide a cool, dry smoke.
The name "Dry" comes from the introduction of the Balsa "filter" into the traditional system pipe - the "System" being the presence of the built-in moisture trap in the shank, linked with the "smokehole on the top" mouthpiece. The balsa mops up the moisture in the smoke hence the term "Dry" system, and if the pipe is smoked without the balsa all that will happen is that this moisture will condense and collect in the trap. It can then either be mopped up with a folded pipecleaner, or flicked out.
Just be careful where you flick it!
Put this all together and you can see why we say these are technically our best designed pipes. But the technical qualities are not all these pipes have to offer. Extra bonuses are the feel, the finishes and the balance.

Well balanced making the pipe light in the mouth

The benefits:

Savinelli Dry Cross Section1. The large smokehole on the top of the mouthpiece allows the smoke to leave in an even spread, and not directly onto the tongue; its size makes it easy to . clean and spreads the flavour in the mouth. Its position makes it difficult for juices to enter the stem from the mouth.
2. The Bent stem ensures that the pipe is very light on the teeth;
3. The use of the optional balsa insert mops up any excess moisture without changing the taste;
4. The firm-fitting peg mouthpiece won't twist off in the pocket;
5. The metal band prevents the shank from swelling and cracking if there is too much moisture in the trap, (for example, if the balsa is not used);
6. It has a built-in moisture trap.
. .

The result: A cool, dry smoke, enhancing the flavour of the tobacco
. . . . . . . . . . - the "dry system" eliminates the problem of "wet smoking".
