In the process of manufacture, curing the briar is done before sorting the bowls, and has to be good enough for the best
pipe made by the company. Naturally the manufacturers will end up with a fair number of bowls that are just below the quality required for their branded ranges. These bowls undergo less expensive finishing processes and are sold at more economical prices. Such pipes are the Capitol from Savinelli or Lorenzo's Albanian pipes.
These pipes offer many opportunities - from an inexpensive entrée to the world of pipes, to the stopgap for the pipe left
at home, or the one to smoke when in the garden, workshop or out fishing.

Savinelli Capitol, Grezza Original, Grezza Polished

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!

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

Filters

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.

WATCHPOINT
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

From the House of Lorenzo

Filtro Large 9mm / Pavia / Janua / Churchwardens / Oom Paul / Mini

It was with great foresight that some years ago the House of Lorenzo saw the benefits of investing in Albania
with its supply of briar and its emerging economy.

VIVACE

A scaled-down version of the original Lorenzo Valsesia range.
All standing shapes, with different bowls emerging from the wrap-around holding section.
Just as comfortable in the hand as the original Valsesia, take one in your hand and you’ll see what I mean.
And being on the short side, they rest comfortably in the mouth.
The slightly smaller bowl capacity follows the modern trend towards shorter smoking times.

Four finishes:

Carve-your-own pipe

Carvit yourself

Bowl bored, shank and mouthpiece prepared - technically the pipe is
ready for you to express your vision.

But beware, briar is hard
– you’ll need proper wood sculpting tools and some patience.

The result will be worth it!
We’d love to see a picture.
