Savinelli La Corta Rustic Pipes were made to fit the recent trend for shorter pipes, in fact, La Corta means "the short one" in Italian. But these pipes will really suit just about anyone. Clenchers will like them because the short length makes them easy to keep in the mouth, while people who prefer to hold the pipe in their hand will enjoy the rusticated finish for easier grip, and the thick walls to keep the pipe from being too hot. These briars feature a handsome rustication that has been finished with a dark reddish-brown stain, and mated to a tortoise-shell colored acrylic stem that's both durable and requires little maintenance. A tasteful, narrow goldtone trim ring completes the attractive package. There are three great-looking shapes to choose from. Two features that aren't common among Savinelli pipes will appeal to a number of people. First, these are unfiltered pipes, which will please the traditional American pipe enthusiast, and being one of only a handful of Savinellis that routinely sell for under $100, these pipes will draw a crowd!
