    Hey everyone,

    I am looking to buy myself a grauation present or maybe get someone to get it for me! :) and I was looking on SP for good deals. I saw the Savinelli Trevi, any of the Sav Standings, or a Sav Florence.

    Does anybody own one of these? Any reviews of them would be great!

    Thanks again!

    Jomo

    My first pipe was a Sav University Pipe, it is a great daily smoker for me. although I have not purchased another one, as all the others keep calling my name. Personally I would rather buy a Nordng for 50 bucks than a Sav for 50. YMMV
    Almost forgot.... Congrats!!!

    I don't own any of those but really like the trevi line. They are good looking with that silver band. I like the red-ish finish on the florence and the standings are great took. Which shape(s) were you considering?

    The only savinelli I have is the university and well...there's a thread on that one. It won't keep my from buying any other savinelli, I will say that.

    A pipe sounds like a great graduation present! I used to mark occasions like that with a fine cigar. Unfortunately I ran into a problem with cigars burning out. Many didn't even last two hours. I switched to briar and haven't had a burnout since! ;)

    I love the look of the rusticated Trevi. Lil Brown Smokeshop has them, with very nice prices.

    I was considering a bulldog shape since I don't have one in my collection. Or a sitter of any kind. And it's from H.S. Beale.
    I talked my uncle into buying me one finally last night so now all I have to do is pick!

    That pipe will be something special to you as it will mark your graduation and stimulate a memory of your uncle each time you light up a bowl. Congrats on both!
