I'd guess I have eight Petes and maybe a dozen Savs. I love the bulk of Pete designs and have been altogether lucky with quality. However, recommending pipes to a new pipe smoker not familiar with all the considerations and issues, I'd steer them toward Savinelli. I think their quality is better and more consistent; there is a huge range of shapes and finishes; and the designs are snappy and lithe. I might say, buy a few Savs and then try a Pete.
