Hailing from Italy, Savinelli is at the pinnacle of all smoking pipes. Perhaps the best thing about this immensely famous pipe brand is its history. A lot of hard work and countless prototypes went into creating the staple shape and mechanism of the Savinelli pipe that we love today.
Making around 100,000 pipes annually, the name is well known. They invented a triangular balsa filter (which fits in a 6mm tenon) and their pipes have a rather even number of vulcanite and acrylic stems. The company produces many lines and series of pipes shapes that are either smooth, sandblasted, rusticated, or a mixture of these finishes.
