The Savinelli Minuto line was created and designed to allow cigarette smokers to find a new and more flavorful way to smoke their cigarette shag. While it is obviously more flavorful to smoke tobacco out of a briar bowl that out of burning paper, this pipe is also much more stylish than a traditional cigarette. Included with this pipe is a bundle of 6mm cigarette filter, pipe tool, and a pipe pouch.

I am a cigarette smoker trying to quit those darn things...
I'm giving it five stars because of the value. The case adds value; here is more to it than advertised. There are two zippered punches. The larger one has a sewn-in sleeve to store pipe cleaners and a tamper with the pipe. The smaller pouch is rubber lined and could store a decent amount of tobacco. The packed kit is about the size of a 100mm pack of cigarettes.
The pipe is well made and smokes well if a bit hot. There is a bit more surface area burning than with a cigarette, so it's not hard to get a hard hit of smoke. You do need a cool-down period between smokes.
The pipe does *not* use "regular", filters, but "slim" sized conventional filters. These are just as available. You DO want to change the filter after each smoke.
It might be possible to take an X-acto knife to a balsa filter and use this with pipe tobacco, but it would need to be tobacco that smokes well in small bowls. I haven't tried it yet.
Overall I think it's a novel concept, well done.
Great small pipe. Good while on the go when time restraints doesn't permit smoking a large bowl.
Fits great in any pocket. Very convenient!
