Clearly this pipe was inspired by the reptile it is named after. With a sparse rustic finish that has an intentional resemblance to the skin of that reptile. These pipes are offered in multiple color editions, but this blue is one of our favorite. The contrast between the color and brass detailing is sublime. We suggest filling this pipe with a bowl of your favorite Savinelli tobacco and smoking on a nice relaxing afternoon.

This is my second favorite pipe next to my Bianca 310 KS. This pipe has a great feel in the hands and sits well. It will tip with a rubber bit on but... still sits upright.
Things I love:
Very comfortable to hold, sits upright on a table due to flat bottom, doesn’t get too hot, convertible filter system is great for experimenting, finish is beautiful, stem fit is very precision, appearance makes your friends go “whoa!”
Things I dislike: ..........
Blue Savinelli Alligator 311 review.
The Alligator finish comes from the combination of a rusticated finish with random smooth spots. Apart from giving it a totally unique and pleasing appearance, the alligator finish makes it an extremely comfortable pipe to hold. The feature I like the most is that it stands up when you set it down, no more ashes all over the table. As to the construction specs, such as draft hole placement, stem fit, finish, and overall quality, they are all excellent........ it's a Savinelli .
A good pipe at a reasonable price. Broke in easily.
