Savinelli Unfinished Vulcanite

Savinelli pipes are easily among our most popular, but some can be a little pricey. Savinelli Unfinished Vulcanite pipes start out as regular production pipes that might turn out to be Arcobalenos or Qandales, but while they're sanding them, some may have noticeable flaws, or the grain might be a little weak. Rather than going any further, they don't stain or rusticate them, but they fit them with comfortable vulcanite stems and sell them for a lot less than their regular lines. As they're smoked, the pipes darken and pick up a nice patina, so they become more handsome with use. They might not be perfect, but when you can get a Savinelli at this price, you care a lot less about esthetics. There's really only one problem with Savinelli Unfinished Vulcanite pipes - we can never get enough, so if you see one you like, grab it, because the odds are that it won't be here when you come back.

good pipe
This pipe isn’t as enjoyable as my other unfinished pipe but it is still nice. It does take a while to break in and get rid of the wood taste but after the initial break in, tobacco smells and tastes great. I am quickly becoming a fan of unfinished pipes. I think they are overall better to smoke and have more character than a finished pipe.

Great Value
I was so happy when I found this shape in the Savinelli "unfinished" lineup & added it to my cart without a second thought. I bought one very much like this in a pipe shop ~15 yrs. ago and it is still on my rack of favorites. I have a couple of "canadians" (my #1 style from a functional standpoint) in my repair bin so this was a welcomed addition. Yes, there are a couple of checks in the bowl but they're well-filled and being unfinished, a good wax is being readily absorbed giving the briar a fine look. It is breaking in just like my other Savinellis and in less than a year of weekly smoking, the checks will be virtually undetectable.

Well Worth The Price
I have been a big fan of Italian pipes for over 15 years. Of these, Savinellis are my favorites. This line is relatively inexpensive among Italian pipes. Although unfinished, they quickly take on a deep amber color. Don't be put off by the color in the catalogue. They are well worth the price.

Savinelli Unfinished 644KS
As a new pipe smoker, I love it. I now have a 320 in addition to this one and both are excellent smoking pipes. They also really do begin to darken in a short period of time. Well worth the price!

Great deal!
I love this pipe. It smokes as well if not better than anything I own. It has a few fill that are not overly noticeable, but looks great. I was going to finish it but decided not to to see how it would look. It is starting to take on a nice color. I'll probably buff it and wax it after a while. Such a good deal for a great pipe. I like it so well that I ordered a 404 this morning. I don't think you can go wrong with these pipes.

Great pipe for finishing
Great pipe, great price. Most people choose not to finish them but I rusticated mine and shined it up with some halcyon 2 wax. Looks beautiful and smokes even better!

Excelent pipe for the price!
I love the Dublin shape. It came with 6 minor defects covered with wood filler. Totally acceptable, it has certain charm to it. It gets darker with use getting a patina of it's own. I also bought a 101 pot straight, didn't like that one as much, is surprisingly huge!

No Regrets
No regrets buying the Savinelli Unfinished Vulcanite 404, I was so happy with this one that I just ordered the Savinelli Series III Unfinished Liverpool-Straight. This pipe is my "go-to" when working in the garage and yard. No real concern if a few more marks show up. It has started to darken nicely with a beautiful grain showing through. Love the Dublin shape.

Savanelli Unfinished 644KS.
A great short pipe. Need to char the inside of the pipe bowl. Smells like burning wood towards the end. After several smokes it has broken in nicely and has a cool smoke. The bowl is sizable for a decent smoke and fits in hand well. Have a few really small blemishes. Really liked this shape. Would buy another.

Very nice Savinelli
This is my second unfinished Sav pipe. Gave the first as a gift. Then decided I needed one to add to my collection. I rubbed the unfinished grain with 4 coats of a high end bourbon. Looks amazing, tastes amazing !!!!!

Great pipe. Some smaller fills, but barely noticeable. Smokes great. I hit it with some white diamond, but decided not to finish it further and its looking great. This is one heck of a great deal. I will buy another of these when they come around again.

Still a great buy.
Bought one of the "unfinished" series a few years ago. It soon became one of my favorite Savinellis. Hardly any visible fills and very smooth finished surface. So decided to go for a second of this series. This one also shows very little fills, however the surface finish is unpleasantly rough to the touch, in contrast to the earlier pipe. Am working on it a bit with some 480 grit paper and it is much improved. They could have saved me some effort by a simple buffing at the factory; but still don't hesitate to recommend to anyone who prefers a Savinelli.
5 out of 5
Well Worth the very Reasonable Price
Exactly what I wanted and expected. Breaking it in now and it is smoking great so I'm thinking the drilling is spot on, the briar is very good quality and it is only the small blemishes and not so great grain that makes the pipe more a working than showing pipe. Put a little Denicare briar polish on it after a smoke and you get a head start on the darkening.

Bargain price for a great smoker!
I bought one of these some months ago and really enjoyed it. So I bought another, but when it came to me I found a natural crack in the bowl, grom the top rim down about a half inch, and more than a few big, obvious fills. I didn't expect the pipe to be flawless of course. But the crack was too much of a flaw to ignore. The good news is that with a simple call to P&C and their courteous, helpfull customer service person easily sent me a second pipe. When the unfinished Liverpool arrived it was in much better condition, with only a few, slight fills. After just a few minutes spent opening the draft hole and airway of the stem it became a perfect smoker. Well balanced and comfortable, I began smoking it immediately and didn't put it down for several days. The unstained finish began to color quite easily. This is an inexpensive bargain pipe, but it's still a Savinelli product. Well worth the money, and watching it color and develop a patina is kinda cool. Like coloring a Meerschaum, but quicker. Every serious pipe smoker should own several of these. You won't be disappointed!

I love unfinished pipes because as you smoke them they darken. A friend has had an unfinished pipe for almost 20 years and it's nearly black now. This one feels great and is quite light for its size.

BARGAIN FOR A GOOD SMOKE
THIS IS MY THIRD UNFINISHED SAVINELLI. I HAVE NOT YET SMOKED IT AS I AM SANDING IT TO GIVE IT A FINISH. IT HAS NO FILLS AND SEVERAL TINY PITS THAT ARE HARD TO SEE. IT IS STRAIGHT GRAIN ON ONE SIDE AND SOMEWHAT OF A MESS ON THE OTHER. FOR SMOKING, THESE HAVE BEEN BETTER THAN MY DUNHILLS.

Love it!
This is my second Savinelli unfinished series III. They smoke really well and darken up very nicely. This Liverpool to me looks like it is flawless and should have gone on the a finished pipe. I'm very pleased and happy with my purchase. Who knows, maybe might buy a third one.

Savinelli Unfinished Pipe
It's a Sav !!! After receiving pipe, I wiped the pipe down with 4 coats of a high quality bourbon, allowing pipe to dry between coats. I gave the pipe to my father as a gift before he headed on vacation. He called from the back deck of their vacation home to tell me how good the pipe smoked and tasted on its maiden voyage. Now it's time to get one for myself to add to my collection. A+

A great pipe from a great pipe-maker at a great price
I look forward to seeing how this pipe's briar will darken over time by the oils on my hands and the tobacco in its chamber. It is a beautiful briar. If it is flawed by Savinelli's standards, the flaw is undectable to my eye, and it is clearly my gain.

Doesn't look perfect
It might not look perfect but once broken in it smokes as well as any thing I have. A little mineral oil and it looks almost perfect.

Well worth it!
I am very pleased with my purchase of this Savinelli unfinished Series III pipe. This is a very nice pipe with a few blemishes that smoke superbly. A great smoking pipe at a great price. Ive only had it a few weeks and it has already darkened into a very nice shade of brown from smoking and handling it. I plan to buy more of these.

Good pipe
Good pipe for the money. Expect a few fills in the pipe that will be noticeable when you smoke it a few times. This turns a nice mahogany color from the oil on your hands after you smoke it for a while. The first one I got had a cracked shank but Pipes and Cigars quickly shipped out a new one to me with no hassle. That is the reason I keep coming back, excellent customer service!

Very happy with this purchase. Love the unfinished smooth surface, stays cool to the touch, a very respected name, and the price was outstanding.

This is a winner
I bought this pipe with the intention of coloring, polishing and waxing to a traditional finish. When I received my unfinished pipe I was quite taken by the color and feel of the unfinished briar. If there are any flaws in this pipe, you will need better eyes than mine to find it. With very little break in, the pipe is gaining a beautiful color and the grain is truly striking. It feels like soft leather and smokes as great as it look. I have no intention now of "finishing" this pipe and will buy more styles in the very near future.

Tiny dust in the shank may need to be cleaned out for a good fit.
1st unfinished Savinelli - 1st Savinelli, period. Really like this pipe. Draft hole well place & looks great with some "skin oil", too -- nice color. Cleaner goes all the way through with no effort. First bent I've had that does it. Just a heads-up about the fit of the stem. Could barely get it out of the shank & thought I'd gotten a lemon but cleaned the shank well with some Everclear & a q-tip, as well as put a little PURE silicone on the tenon & it fits perfectly. It had a slight amount of dust in the shank even after blowing it out. Even a very tiny amount of dust can interfere with a precision fit. Need to expect some, I guess with the unfinished briar.

Great Minimalist Pipe
I've received my Savinelli Unfinished Series II Pipe -- Diplomat. Great shape, cool smoking, very little drink in the stem. I anticipate the exterior to take on a wonderful patina, from use in the future ... maybe a little help from some ting oil -- or a light coating of bee's wax on the exterior. I'm very pleased.

Savinelli unfinished bent pot
this pipe is the equivalent of their 622 model that they (Savinelli) offers in most of their lines sans the filter. but who cares, for half the price or more, a generous bowled pot to enjoy great english blends, that will darken and only smoke and look better as you enjoy it. i love this pipe.

Gets better with age and use. Great value
A Savinelli Unfinished was the second pipe that I bought. I bought it at a local tobacconist here in SE WI. Over the past couple of years I have smoked the heck out of it and it has been a great smoke. Yes, it took a bit to break it in. Patience is key. But once it was broken in, it has ended up being my go to pipe (I'm up to 5 pipes now). The color has darkened significantly and it looks great. Great starter pipe but will be with you for the long haul.

Fantastic Pipe
This is a great pipe. While there are a few 'flaws' in the brier, personally I believe it provides more character. It functions amazingly, I have smoked it a few times and It has been simply amazing. I have been using cheek oil on it to give a good patina and it provides quite a bit of personal character. All of this alone makes this a great pipe, add in the reduced price for a perfectly good Sav and this is an excellent find! There is a very good chance I will buy another in the future.

Impressed beginner
As an absolute newby, I took a chance on this pipe- I know almost nothing about pipes; this is my third and I was very surprised at how well it smokes! My other two are a bit of a chore to keep lit and this pipe just stays lit in spite of my inexperience. I like the way it draws and am enjoying watching the bowl take on its color, I would recommend the bent pot for any beginner.

Savinelli Series III Unfinished Bent Pot
I was on the fence about buying this pipe until the customer appreciation sale. I'm glad I did it is a great smoker & has started to color in very nicely. The pipe I received has quite a lot of fills, but I was prepared for that, it takes nothing away from how it smokes. It has a wide & deep bowl, good for a nice long smoke! I'm glad I got mine during the sale, if not I would have waited to get the Spring 622KS, which is what I believe mine was destined to be.

Savinelli Series III
I have always enjoyed Savinelli pipes and the unfinished Series III is no exception. If you are used to only 'finished' pipes, this series will be a new experience. The only finish is a light sanding. They are in a natural state. No stain, no coatings, and no wax. That's what makes them so great. Smoking them will be an enjoyable experience. They smoke as well, or better, than my other Savinellis. The color is that of natural briar. Part of the experience is watching them color-up with repeated smoking. It actually doesn't take that long, and they gain an attractive brown patina. After my first two, I bought a third one. Comparing the color of an unsmoked pipe with my previous two, after smoking, was dramatic. There ar a few cosmetic imperfections, but those just add to the character.

Great smoke, kinda rough on the finish though...
This is my second Savinelli unfinished. The first was a dublin that was nice and smooth with only a very small area with fill in it. This latest diplomat was much more unfinished. It had large areas of filler, the surface was not sanded nearly as smooth and there are a few small nicks or gouges. I'm not nearly as happy with this as I was with my prior unfinished pipe. Hopefully this was just a fluke and not the new standard for these as I really like them otherwise.

Beautiful Pipe!
The Savinelli Unfinished Liverpool is a beautiful pipe, feels amazing in the hand, and smokes wonderfully. I love "natural" unfinished pipes, and this one is perfect. Will get a few more in the future. As always, great service and value from P&C.com.

A jolly good smoke with these!
These pipes are a deal if you know how to handle them. A lot of folks smoke these in their unfinished state... all is good... but that is not my style. These pipes have a lot of fills and that is why they were rejected, but the briar wood is top of the line. I like to rusticate these, then I color the fills and then stain and wax. The vulcanite mouth piece is also waxed. When they are done they beautiful! I use an old Smoke King to pre-smoke these and build a little char with some shag G & H Brown Irish X because these are a little funny tasting at the start, but you can char the old-fashioned way too. These pipes are a deal and can help provide a wonderful weekend project or a personal gift for a friend or family member.

Great Pipe, Great Value!
I have always admired the Savinelli 320 shape as well as unfinished briar. After missing the last batch of these I finally got my hands on one and have been impressed with the aesthetics and quality since it arrived!

A few fills/sandpits here and there, but that's to be expected from a pipe that's been moved to the "unfinished" pile. Smokes like a Savinelli should and is darkening up nicely.

Turn unfinished into a gem.
Received the unfinished pipe in 2 days. Spent 2 days researching finishing methods. Finally settled on what I thought was the least expensive and safest. Applied 2 coats of olive oil over 2 days. Finished with Paragon Wax. Ended up with a stunning red/brown color. It looks elegant. Chuck A

Smokin' Value
The Savinelli unfinished series 3 author is the best bang for the buck I've had the pleasure to own. You can't go wrong with this budget minded briar. Great smoker from the start and the wood is taking on a beautiful color from use. I will be ordering another one in these when PAD strikes again.

Savinelli Seconds bent pot
I like this very much. It smokes well and feels good to hold. Unfortunately a newbee must have done the "in filling" as he/she used a light color fill instead of a dark color fill and they really show (they will not darken). Otherwise I'm satisfied. No longer have any oil in my old hands so I resorted finally to olive oil and the rest of the pipe took to it and darkened right away.

Great pipe
This is a great pipe for the money. The pipe smokes very cool and is a joy to use. The grain of the pipe begins to show the more you smoke it and reveals the grain of the pipe.

Savinelli seconds (unfinished series iii pipes)
Very happy with these. Good large bowls and wonderful smokers. They don't look nice but will fill in naturally as the tobacco stains them. I don't have the talent to finish them with stain and wax, etc. but I look forward to watching them take on the tobacco. Great deal except that they went on sale after I purchased them. Go get 'em!

Three stars
At first appearance it looks OK, after closer inspection you can tell where the imperfections are at, and how unsymmetrical the pipe is, mine looks as if it was a practice pipe, and it was rejected...With that said, the drilling is good and the pipe smokes well, I have owned the pipe for awhile and it has, from handling and smoking, taken on a nice color.

My favorite pipe!
A delightful smoke, I really enjoy watching the color change over time as I smoke it. The only complaint have about my unfinished Savinelli is I can't find one in Bulldog.

Best Buy in Budget Briars!
Tell you what pipe smokers. I have two Authors and a Zulu, and I'm itching to buy another Author if I can sneak it by the wife! They color beautifully and smoke like a DREAM. One of the best budget buys in the pipe world today...

Functionality and Personality all in one.
The unfinished Savinelli author was just what I needed, I've been wanting this shape for the longest time. Not only is this pipe a great smoker, but it's also got some character too. Mine came with 2 flaws and you'd really need to study it to find them not only that but they are coloring with the pipe itself each time I smoke from it. I consider it my poor mans meerschaum due to how it's slowly developing its own stain over time, I couldn't be happier! All the quality from a high end Savinelli at a fraction of the price.

I am new to pipe smoking and wanted a Savinelli pipe. This pipe smokes great and it is one that is always in my pipe rotation. It's beautiful to look at and the price was excellent. Well worth the money.

Not quite like my older (vintage?) Savinelli's
Re: Savinelli Liverpool and Apple Series III pipes:To start with, the inner diameter at the front of the stem of the "Liverpool" was too small for the thin end of a tapered pipe cleaner and caused noticeable, uncomfortable air resistance. I widened them (long, fine Dremel bit) and they are fine now....but that should not have been so poorly made. Additionally, the bowl of the Apple has numerous faults (I've no idea how deep) filled with wood filler! As to how they smoke, they seem to require quite a while to break in (largely smoking Dunhill 965).....taking longer than my other Savinelli's (purchased in Europe in the 1980's). That all being said, the shapes are aesthetically pleasing and, assuming that they do become nicely broken in, a good bargain. (so my review of 3 stars could eventually move up to 3.5, or even 4 stars)

Savinelli Unfinished
Great pipe! Just finished smoking it for the night. The color is slowly changing and it looks like it will be beautiful! Easy to smoke and hold.

A nice smoking pipe!
I really like this pipe. It smokes well and cleans easily. The unfinished “natural” surface of the briar feels really nice (and natural) to hold. I really like the coloring it is taking on the more I handle and smoke it. It really brings out the grain of the briar in a matte looking finish.

Customer Testimonials
I purchased this a few weeks ago. The pipe is nicely shapes and finished. A pipe cleaner goes all the way through. Large bowl and smokes nice. Big negative is that I had three spots that were filled and very noticeable once I stained it. Because of this I would not buy again.
I just bought the Dublin and smoking it now. It has a generous bowl for a nice, long smoke and is pretty comfortable to clench. The pipe I received has some beautiful grain and no real signs of imperfections. Can't wait to see how it darkens over time. It's simple, but beautiful. Would highly recommend.
Very nice quality pipe. I finish mine with a red/brown stain and it came out great. Just a few small fills on the exterior but the bowl cylinder was defect free. It came out so nice I'm buying another one!
As an owner of a Sav unfinished Author, one of the best, sweetest smoking pipes I own! The pipe darkens over time to a great patina. If you can snag one, DO IT! The weez
