Savinelli Tortuga Rustic (#626)
Don't skimp, go for the Savanelli
Hadn't smoked a pipe for thirty years but picked a Savinelli Tortuga 626 out when I ordered a humidor. My brother had given me a pound of tobacco and one his older pipes he wasn't using any more to entice me start up again. Well, I used the pipe for awhile and while it was better than nothing, it just wasn't as easy to keep it going and it developed moisture rather easily. This new Savanelli is different like night and day. The balsa filter makes a huge difference in the moisture and the crackling. The bowl never gets beyond barely warm and almost never dies out. There's very few pipes that look as good too. I've smoked a bowl every night since I've received it and don't plan on changing. My cigars are going to last much much longer. There's not any possibility whatsoever, you could be disappointed in it.
