SAVINELLI CONVERTIBLE BALSA SYSTEM  


Those pipes referred to as 'CONVERTIBLE' are designed to be used with the Savinelli Balsa System, a filtering system that uses the natural attributes of balsa wood. It allows the absorption of both moisture and impurities from smoke, without the addition of chemical elements, ensuring a clean pipe shank. This absorption ability is due to the extremely porous fibers of the balsa, which allows for a perfect smoke without altering the flavor and aroma of the tobacco.

This patented filtering system has been tested both by the EURATOM Research Center of Ispra and by the CHEMICAL & ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY Inc. Research Center (USA) with, more or less, the same results: “..the filter has the ability to absorb 77% of the nicotine and 91% of the tar contained in tobacco without altering the flavour of same”. The filter is uncomplicated and easy to use.

It is advisable to replace it every two to three smokes, or every time you clean the pipe. It is also recommended not to let the pipe sit longer than one day with a used filter inserted. With the insertion of the adaptor (included with the 6mm filters), the pipe can also be smoked perfectly well without the filter.

Once you experience its effect, you'll agree that it is one great smoking system. Almost every pipe Savinelli produces today comes with a pack of 20 Balsa inserts and a converter tube, which gives you the choice. This unique system makes the Balsa System-equipped pipe an ideal 'first pipe' for the beginning pipe smoker. Experienced pipe smokers also enjoy the cooling effect of this system. Whether or not you use the Balsa System, you will be smoking one of the world's best made quality briar pipes, backed by over a century of dedication to excellence.
