So today I went to work and a co-worker called me over to his truck before he left for his route today. Anyways, since he's the new hirer and I'm the senior tech I've been helping him quite a bit. Anyways, as a way to say thanks he presented me with an estate pipe, one of his first pipes...a Savinelli Madera 601. Sadly the shank has a crack in it; however, he had it fixed long ago and so, according to him, there is no functionality issues only cosmetic. The stem could use a good polishing, and the bowl a nice cleaning. He has one of those rubber ends on the stem which I'll remove when I go to clean it up. Plus he gave me a two-pipe tobacco pouch, and eighteen Savinelli 6mm filters for the pipe.





Sorry for the poor picture quality.

Nice pipe, one that I'd be happy with.

Despite the issues with the shank it looks like it's going to be a good smoker.

Good on your gifter!


Cheers,

RR

Excellent co-worker there. Very Happy

That's a nice looking pipe. Considering it was a gift, if it ever does require a repair, it would be well worth the investment.

Nice gift Jay! I really like the balsa filter system, because unlike other filters, it doesn't require that 100% of the smoke pass through the filter itself.
