The 673 pipe can be a conundrum for many pipe smokers. It could be a bulldog, or it could be a rhodesian. Either way, one thing is for sure: this pipe smokes incredibly well. The larger sized briar bowl is optimal for absorbing the heat and oil from the tobacco while the small bend in the pipe keeps the moisture away from you when smoking. All in all, this Savinelli Alligator 673 is as close to a perfect pipe as a pipe can be at this price range.

This was my first Savinelli and now have 3 more. I really like the feel of this pipe in my hand and it smokes cool and sweet. I prefer blends like Frog Morton and this pipe really lets me enjoy the various flavors of the tobacco. I would almost say that this is a thinner version of the famous 320 shape (of which I have 2) and LOVE MY SAVINELLI Pipes. For the money, you can't go wrong.
