What's the Word About Aldo Velani Pipes?
I came across the Aldo Velani brand on pipesandcigars.com and liked the looks of a couple pipes they offered, but I don't know anything about them and pipedia doesn't say anything about them. So I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience with this brand. Here are the couple I was looking at for your viewing pleasure.
Please allow me to adjust my pants,
so that I may dance the good time dance,
and put all the on-lookers and inocent bystanders into a trance.
I've had good luck with them.

They are made by Cesare Barontini, and are very nice for the price from what I've seen. I have several friends who have Velani pipes, and they are happy with them. I'm looking into getting one as well.

I know a few guys with them and they like them alot they say its one of the best in that price range.
When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.
There is something not right about the first pic. That pipe looks to me to have some kind of coating on outside of bowl?

I have a Velani Corona and like it a lot. I'd say its on a par with Savinelli, of which I have many. I think you'll be pleased.
Blowin' smoke since 1970.
I have 5 of 'em and really like 'em. Never had any problems with them. Reasonable price and very well made.
I have two. One I bought estate, one I bought new.
Both are very nice pipes.

I have been looking to order one for several months now and have been asking myself the same questions that you presented here. Given what everyone says, I may have to give it a go. Thanks for bringing this one up!
I think for the money, they are definitely worth a shot. I've been eyeballing them for a while now, and I'm going to have to acquire one soon I believe.

I have a couple and am more than happy with them

I have 2 and love them, perfect smokers.
I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

And here's another an unused one...He held up a small pipe with a wide flattened bowl, and handed it to Gimli. 'Does that settle the score between us', said Merry.

I actually have 3, to be honest. I have a Mitchell Thomas pipe, as well.
I own an Aldo Velani Starter and it is a phenomenal pipe. I highly recommend their products.
A Velani Filtro was my first pipe, and still one of my best smokers. I absolutely love it and will definitely picking up another someday. I smoke it without the filter and I love every puff.
I like to smoke pipes
After reading your post, I did a quick search and ended up one which I would like to get shortly.
Posting the picture here. What do you guys think?
Albert Einstein was once quoted as saying, “I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” One of the reasons behind this statement is that pipe smoking is meant to be a slow leisurely activity. It takes patience to smoke a pipe. Unlike cigarettes and cigars, there is a certain amount of technique to smoking a pipe. Where cigars and cigarettes can just be picked up, lit and puffed on, pipes require the development of a technique in order to get the best smoking experience.
