Savinelli pipes are some of the best-known tobacco pipes and continue to lead the world in the production of quality Italian smoking pipes.
Achille Savinelli Sr. built a name for himself selling tobacco and tobacco accessories. Originally a designer of pipes but not a manufacturer, it was not until two generations later when a grandson, Achille Savinelli Jr., turned the successful tobacco shop into a pipe smoking empire. Achille Junior took to sculpting briar into elegant and excellent smoking pipes like a fish takes to water.
According to Savinelli, Achille Junior saw the opportunity to improve the standard of Italian smoking pipes. At the time, the pipes made in Italy were mass-produced and not of good quality. This led to the pipes that were purchased in Italy being predominantly foreign made. By making his own pipes, Achille Junior not only reversed that trend but also helped spread Savinelli pipes worldwide.
Opening in the late 1940s, the Savinelli pipe factory greatly helped establish an Italian pipe market internationally. Today, run by great-grandson Giancarlo Savinelli, the company continues to be beloved by pipe smokers all over the world. Read more about the Savinelli history here.

Ever the innovators, Savinelli pipes are known for their unique Balsa Filter System, which uses the ultra-porous Balsa wood to cut down on tar and cool the smoke. Savinelli makes the most of this system by making primarily convertible pipes that allow you to choose your smoking preference each time.
