A larger than usual bowl made more popular by the Savinelli brand itself, the Author has many qualities for any pipe smoker to enjoy. The wider chamber walls provide the pipe with a better ability to absorb heat and oil while burning tobacco. This particular Author has a handsome woodgrain smooth finish with a thick tapered stem.

The pipe itself smokes great. Great draw and perfectly drilled. Really like the size and feel. The only reason for 3 stars was the finish on the briar. The briar is of great quality but the finish is sub-par. 50% or more of the bowl hasn't been polished while the other half shines brightly. I bought this pipe in a smooth finish because I really love to see the grain highly polished. Had I known this ahead of time I would have just purchased a rusticated version. Again the pipe works great just sub-par on the finish. I expected more from Savinelli.
