Back in the day, my favorite pipe was always my Savinelli Estella 316.  There was just something about the way this pipe handled Virginia flakes that was unparalleled!  I stupidly sold the pipe years ago, and after getting back into the hobby last year, I have been searching high and low for one.  

There was finally a 316 that popped up on eBay this week, and not only did I win it last night, but actually got it for a good bit less than I planned to bid.  It is a darker color than my previous 316, and the stem is a little different as well, but I feel like I will be reuniting with an old friend this week and have no doubt this will be a fine smoker!

That pipe is gnarly! Hope it turns out to be a winner like your previous one.

Wow, that is one craggy pipe, Scott.  Looks like it was hewn from the bed rock of Mordor.  

I like it. Smile

I have an Estella 803EX that smokes great. I enjoy the feeling of it in my hand. Hope yours smokes great also.

I've come to appreciate those lines in a pipe. Yours is sweet!

Just received the pipe today. Unfortunately the pipe appears to be covered with these tiny specs. I am including a pic below as I have never seen anything like this before. Any idea what this is and how I would be able to get it off?

Maybe try a soft toothbrush and a little baking soda dissolved in distilled water. That's what I'd do.

Thanks Rande. Actually someone recommended warm soapy water with a microfiber cloth. I scrubbed hard for a solid 10 min and finally got it off. Now to exorcise the ghost of Lane 1Q lol! Loading up some Gawith Hoggarth Dark Flake Unscented! Should only take a few bowls to get that ghost out lol.
