the process of manufacture, curing the briar is done before sorting the
bowls, and has to be good enough for the best

The bowls will have surface flaws and fillings, less conspicuous when the pipe is stained and polished.
But remember that all grades of Savinelli bowls receive the same curing treatment ensuring that they give a good smoke.
Optional 6mm filter, Teflon peg.
Style, quality and value!
After curing, the bowl is left untouched.
The pipe can be smoked as is – you could lightly sand off the inevitable ash marks.
Or stain and polish it yourself – perfect for the DIY smoker
The Marca 6 have optional 6mm filters, Lorenzo's Lipari Large, Two Tone Large, Walnut Large, Rustic large and Spot-Carved have optional 9mm filters, and most of the others are fitted with a metal "filter" or arrester, which will prevent small pieces of tobacco lodging in the mouthpiece and may cool the smoke as it slows it down.
A most important word of warning about filter pipes:
Filter pipes must be smoked with either the filter or an adapter (usually supplied with the pipe).
Smoking without the filter (or adapter), even once, will allow moisture to condense in the empty space and seep into the shank, causing it to swell. This will result in a cracked shank, or a loose mouthpiece which is very difficult to remedy. If this happens to you, take it in to your nearest Wesley’s for an opinion.
The Tenon/Peg is tougher than the wood!
Keep it clean so it won’t stick. Wipe and pencil it occasionally so it slides easily. Have a look at the Gallery
Because of the metal band,
Savinelli Dry System pipes are excluded from this warning
Bowl bored, shank and mouthpiece prepared - technically the pipe is
ready for you to express your vision.
But beware, briar is hard
youll need proper wood sculpting tools and some patience.
The result will be worth it!

saw the benefits of investing in Albania
with its supply of briar and its emerging economy.

Care for your Churchwarden pipe by using extra long (30cm) pipe cleaners
The pipe with the optional Churchwarden or Standard mouthpiece.
Choose the Churchwarden mouthpiece for reading or viewing your favourite programme;
Choose the shorter Standard mouthpiece for out-and-about.
All the bowl shapes look equally good with the long or the short mouthpiece.
The bowls all have relatively thick, sturdy shanks.

I have ever had"
- but don't bank on it - just expect value for money.
