    So far this year I've been concentrating on American classics: Kaywoodie, Yello-Bole, and Dr. Grabow. Then, this morning I woke up and felt the need of something different, and somehow this was in my cart and I pushed the button:

    Savinelli Tortuga Rustic 305

    I'm usually not fond of rustic pipes, and I'm usually a Peterson guy, but somehow this just had my name written all over it! I must be ready for a shake-up. Can't wait for it to arrive.

    That's a sweet Savenelli. They do a beautiful job with design, a light touch with maximum effect. Their pipes
    run the gambit from really basic, unfinished pipes for $44, to Autograph pipes, handmade, running into
    hundreds of dollars, and worth it. I have a churchwarden, a 404 zulu I bought unfinished (now beautifully
    finished with wear), and a billiard second. They all smoke really well.

    This will be my first Savinelli, like I said, I'm usually a Peterson guy. Funny thing, I usually prefer an apple or bulldog shaped bowl so this is really a departure for me.

    I've heard great things about the Savs and am really looking forward to this one.

    I recently bought a Tortuga rustic 626 with an Amazon gift card I got for my birthday. I really like it, and strangely find myself using the balsa filters from time to time too if I find myself smoking a fairly wet blend that I'm too impatient to dry out. I have had a few Savinellis in my life and have always found them to be good smokers. Hope you enjoy yours!

    Love the Tortuga Rustics. I think Savinelli does really nice looking rustication. Their pipes are balanced looking and have great lines. And the one I have smokes very well! Hope yours does too!

    I REALLY wish I hadn't seen those two pipes! They're great-looking and is can feel the PAD stir. It's now just a question of how long I can hold out. Why does this happen to me?!

    Ooh I had a straight billiard of the same style in my basket a few weeks ago. I wish I'd pushed the button

    Oh, and I forgot to mention my Sav Oscar Lucite 315 KS prince, four or five years old now; love them Savs.
