The folks at Savinelli must put in a lot of late hours to come up with modern approaches to classic briars. With Savinelli Tigre Rusticated, they've taken it to a whole new level. They've used their well-known "pebble" finish on many pipes in the past, but none are more handsome than these, finished in semi-gloss black. What really makes Savinelli Tigre Rusticated stand out, however, are the stems. They're made of acrylic in an yellow and brown-swirled pattern to evoke the appearance of a Bengal Tiger and sets these Italian briars apart from the pack.
