Savinelli La Corta Smooth Pipes perfectly suit the modern trend for shorter, chunkier pipes. The name La Corta , in fact, is Italian for "the short one". These smooth briars are finished with a coppery, amaretto-colored stain that are paired with handsome, durable, non-oxidizing black acrylic stems. A thin goldtone trim ring gives the La Corta Smooth pipes a more classic look in spite of the trendy size. One thing that will please the traditional American pipe smoker is that these are unfiltered pipes. So, clenchers will enjoy the short length that makes it easier to keep in the mouth, but those who prefer to hold the pipes in their hands will like the thick walls that keep these briars cooler to the touch. Compare the price to a lot of similar pipes and we think you'll find the Savinelli La Corta Smooth Pipes irresistible.
