    I was just browsing some pipes online and came across the Savinelli shape #320. I can't stop looking at it. There's just something about that shape that I really like for some reason.

    Does anyone have one? Like to share some feedback on it? I am seriously considering picking one up!

    Here is a picture of one for reference:

    EDIT: DOH! I put 302 in the thread title and it should be 320!

    That's a really nice shape. Looks like a stubby author to me but I'm not sure what this shape is exactly. That one has some nice grain! Let us know if you get one.

    Ah, just saw one of these on eBay and it looks like this shape is a...Bullnose? Maybe someone can identify this shape for sure.

    +1 Chubby stubby author. Great smoker but not a really good clincher.

    Savinelli makes a good pipe. I'd say just dive right in and buy one ;)

    Yeah, I have one. Have to agree with Jesla. Great smoker, but a clencher it is not. I actually smoked it this weekend and was thinking that if it just has a saddle bit bit it would probably be my favorite pipe.

    I have a rusticated version from the Tevere line I think it is. I love it, my favorite pipe in my small collection so far. It fits perfectly in your hand, but will tire your jaw out pretty quick if you try to clinch it for any amount of time.

    Well, I just sent an email to the closest tobacco/pipe place asking if they could order one for me. They have some savinelli's but I had not seen this shape in their store. I would have called but am at work an unable to do so. We'll see what they say!

    Does anyone know if the trevi line by savinelli is briar? I can't find anything out and nobody is answering me....

    I just wonder because the savinelli trevi in their 320 shape costs a lot less than their other lines and I kinda think it looks a lot nicer.

    Thanks for the answers...I was just curious. I wonder why it costs so much less than their other lines. The trevi line looks really nice, especially with the silver band they add.

    Many pipemakers have lower-priced lines for pipes that may have minor flaws or "fills". don't worry though, these are usually merely cosmetic, and don't affect the smoking mechanics... :bing:

    I have two of the Trevi line pipes, and yes they are briar, and yes, like all other Savinellis that I have, they smoke very well. They also don't have that lame black coating inside the bowl. And like all Savinelli's, fit and finish is way better than you expect for what you pay for the pipe. They are just a good value for the dollar.

    That 320 is just calling my name! Is jump on it, the price is good, and I know its gonna smoke very well, hey, its a Sav!

    Dondi is right. Much of the price of a pipe is dictated by it's aesthetics, and some people just don't like fills or imperfections. It's hard to go wrong with a Sav, and they're usually a good value. All of mine smoke remarkably well.

    I went to a nearby tobacco shop that has a couple savinellis on display, saw one in the shape and really liked it. I talked to some guy there and said I would really like to see one from another line in person first and they are going to order the trevi one for me also. So, soon I should have one. I'll post pics when I get it.
