One of the many reasons why a rhodesian shaped pipe is exceptional, is because of the thick briar walls. All this wood gives the smoke plenty of room in which to dissipate heat. In this case, the rhodesian is a Savinelli 673 KS Roma Lucite pipe. The defining feature seen here is the amber colored lucite stem, which adds complexity to the already beautiful pipe.

Savinelli pipes are the best commercially made pipes on the market. That’s my opinion. Their pride in craftsmanship shows in the finished product. Hooray for Italian workmanship.
This is a very nice pipe with a gorgeous acrylic stem! Well made and it smokes decent. The only reason I can't give 5 stars is because the drilling on the one I bought is off a bit. This seems to be an issue lately with Savinelli, and I hope they address and correct the problem soon. I would buy this pipe again.
