This is a nice, heavy pipe that feels good in the hand. It does require special filters that seem to be a monopolized Savinelli replacement. If you allow it to, it will become quite hot to the hand but some minor care can prevent this if you are willing to concentrate on smoking. I, however, tend to smoke it while working (at the keyboard) sometimes forgetting to pamper it along, so it heats up a little. Slightly more dry tobacco goes a long way in preventing this. It has a reservoir between the bowl and the stem that traps unwanted moisture and that I appreciate for it makes the tobacco less bitter. I recommend it - and its related products - with the minimal reservations above.
This is a very nice pipe. Great workmanship and smokes very nice. Thanks again guys.
