so, a buddy of mine purchased a pipe recently. the dealer said it was a savinelli but i was looking at it and it has no marking on the stem and the bowl just has a standard "imported briar" stamp. i believe he paid $50 for the pipe, a pouch and some cleaning tools as some package deal. does savinelli have cheaper unmarked pipes or did he get duped? either way, he loved the pipe and says it smokes great. it even inspired him to purchase a much nicer savinelli which is a really beautiful pipe.
