Savinelli Eleganza Rusticated Pipes are handsome amalgams of the old and the new. The old is the striated carving, reminiscent of rustication patterns that used to be very popular, and the dark brown stain reinforces the look. The new comes from the deep blue acrylic stem that adds some color, but not in a showy way. Put the two together with bright metal spigot fitments and you have a briar that lives up to its name because these are truly elegant pipes. You'll be happy you decided to add a Savinelli Eleganza Rusticated pipe to your collection.
