    Only have one Sav and I enjoy it. The bottom one is quite nice! No experience with the Alligator line.

    My dad has an alligator. The finish isnt for me, but it is a very solid pipe and smokes like a champ.

    The first pipe I bought was a Sav Gator. Still have it, still love it. With or withou the filter, either way works great.

    Another ardent Savinelli fan here.
    The fact that this particular finish has been around for a long time would indicate there's more than enough folks out there that like it and buy it.
    But....

    I personally have always felt the Alligator series is the most gawdawful lookin' thing Savinelli has ever bought to market. Of course that's just a "krusty" opinion (-;

    I ordered an Alligator 626 Blue but haven't received it yet. They sent me a brown Alligator 626 and I had to return it. Still waiting on the blue one. The brown one wasn't bad but I have a few brown pipes and wanted the black bowl with the black and blue stem.

    never liked the abundance of gold on savinellis, the top one would be nice without it.

    Got one but I hardly ever smoke it. Actually this is true for all (4) the Savinellis I have. Guess we just don't click.

    I'm not one for an artificially colored pipe but I too have been eying up the Savinelli blue alligator - it's a good looking pipe and I'm really diggin' the blue on that one!

    I have a couple of Savs but not an alligator. I like both of those pipes though and would like to add them to my growing PAD list.

    I've got a 'Gator 614 (brown.) Smokes very well. I think the finish actually looks better in person than in photos, the etched pattern is pretty interesting without being overpowering. And the brass ring is a nice touch.

    I bit the bullet last night and bought a green Alligator - looking forward to giving it a smoke!

    They received the incorrect one yesterday. Hopfully they will mail out the correct one ( 626 Blue). I ordered the Blue Alligator one of the last days in June. received the incorrect one on July 09 and they just received it yesterday. So about a month long process...... Better be worth it...

    Looked at them but never bought one. Afraid that they'd bite me.

    I have a Red Gator. It does very well, but I haven't a lot of experience with it.

    Yes it's a little gaudy, but I use it only when I wear wear my gator boots or blue suede shoes.

    Very interesting finish. Not to my taste, but no doubt they're great smokers.
