Ah, the Savoy. It's a brilliant thinking persons pipe that commands the respect of American smokers all over the country. Its smooth curved shank and vulcanite stem allow it to be held and smoked thoughtfully as well as comfortably. It's light weight, so it is easy to hold in your teeth, and smokes cool.
Stamped Leaf(s) may be present on the bowl.

Still puffing on my first Savoy after 26 years ago piping my first bowl. Many Billiards have come and gone since then but I have only recently added a second Savoy to my rotation. With proper care and use, these Grabows can stand the test of time. Well done Sparta Team!
Good size, I like it better than free hand.
The only thing to mention negative about this product is the fact that the bowl it is a bit small (I miss calculated on the product description) and it makes it for a short smoke, besides that pipe lost some color (coating) after 3 uses, I´m guessing from the heat? but nothing too serious. I would still recommend.
Just agreeing with previous review about the pipe not matching the picture. It says Savoy on the box, but it is missing the metal ring at the base of the stem. Still works well though
My grandfather had one of these. I am certain he had other pipe brands too. I remember the Spain on the side. It was appropriate for my start into this hobby.
This pipe took more time to season than the Omega I purchased earlier. It turned out to be a great pipe to smoke. I did not give it 5 stars because I liked the look of the silver ring from the stem to the bowl joint. This pipe did not have that look and it had the appearance more like the Dr Grabow full bent pipe.
