I recently won an auction on EBay for a Savinelli Luxor 101 and paid $26 delivered. Its in really great shape, honestly there are no scratches or blemishes at all. Its a great looking pipe.

So I ask, what is a Luxor? I can see a black stem with 3 copper/brass rings. And reddish briar with nice flame grain and a few birds eyes. It has a 9mm filter as well. But where in Savinelli's lineup does it fall?

Is this it? If so it looks like a well made pipe but, I haven't a clue to an answer for you.
It just might be they don't make this model any longer.

Hey, that's my pipe!
Yes, that's the one. It's a nice feeling pipe, good feel to it.

I wasn't sure if its a lower grade Savinelli? Just a good price?

I'd say, and I'm not a big Sav or billiard fan, that you did real good from the appearance of it.
Just need to buff it a little and wax, also buff the stem up and you'll have a brand new look'en pipe.

Oh! I don't see a logo on the stem so I don't know if it was replaced or it's just turned upside down and not visible in the photo. But, still a good price for a nice pipe.
After further research I've found a couple of these without stem logos so I'm pretty sure it's the original.

The pictures don't show it but the Savinelli "S" on a shield with two pipes is there. And 9mm is on the bottom.

I'm going to clean it up and post some pictures once done!

As long as it's a Savinelli it will be a good smoker.
