    I do not own a Savinelli and I want to get 2 more higher quality pipes and I love the look of this one. Any opinions or anyone own one of these?

    Savinelli has grown to be my favorite pipe brand. Good pipes for good prices

    I own a tundra 320 smooth. Awesome finish, long dry smokes. And I get compliments on its appearance pretty regularly. If I was choosing between the two you linked I would take the tundra over the caramella hands down, but you wouldn't be going wrong with either of them.

    I like the grain on the Tundra better, but the metal band on the Carmella looks good too. Decisions, decisons

    I like the Tundra. But I am more of a traditional shape guy. I have about 10 savinellis and think they offer a lot for the money. Good luck on your choice.

    I've got 3 Savinelli's and they all smoke really well. Probably my go-to pipes most often. Can't go wrong with any of them so have fun shopping.

    I'm actually smoking my Caramella 920 KS as I type this. The Caramella is a wonderful smoker with great aesthetics to boot.

    I have four Savinelli's myself, a Miele 677KS, Caramella 920KS, Solaria 920 KS, and a rusticated Bing's Favorite, and I can say they're all wonderful smokers. You really can't go wrong with a Savinelli.

    All my Savinelli pipes are fine smokers and well made pipes.

    I'm not a fan of sealed (varnished/shellacked) finishes and I prefer rubber/vulcanite > Lucite stems. That said, one of my Sav's, a Bing's Favorite, has a sealed finish and a plastic stem and it smokes well and looks great. The Bing was the last brand new pipe I bought, too. I've since bought only restored estates -- my other Sav's are estate pipes.

    Of the two you linked, I'm with Uber -- I like the cleaner look and the grain of the Tundra better.

    I presently have two Savinelli's and like them both. They smoke great and look great! They are both lower end Sav's so I couldn't imagine how the higher end's could smoke even better. Here is the first one I bought. A Duca Carlo Lumberman. Dedicated to STOKKEBYE light aromatics.

    OK so I broke down and bought the Savinelli Tundra Billiard today, love the look of the stem and the grain on the pipe. Just to make the shipment "worthwhile" I also added a tin of Escudo, Wessex Burley Slices, Bob' Chocolate Flake and Gawith's Best Brown Flake. That will have to do for awhile now........my wallet is not too happy with me! Hurry up postman, should be here in 3-5 days and I hope there are no issues at the border.

    Both of those are nice, but I really like the Tundra, especially with the cumberland stem.

    I can't wait to get it and load it up for the first time, I've been looking at the cumberland stems for a few months now.

    I have been looking at getting a Tundra myself! Hopefully next pipe or so. I like this guy but also would sort of prefer one with a longer stem, since that's the coolest part of the Tundra's IMO.

    Oh man, I looked at that one too, I love the Canadian shape but I'm a clencher so I'm not sure if that would be awkward or not.

    Same, I clench everything tho. Churchwardens, bents, straights, heavies, lights, even both my clays with a little adjusted "grip" -- so I'm sure it'd be OK!
