    so what's up with SmokingPipes? I'm wanted to buy 3 Sav's that totaled almost $500 and they want to give me a whole $27 dollar discount (5%). no one else has all three but by speading the purchases I can get just below 430 w/o checking for discounts.

    Smoking Pipes is expensive, tends to be disorganized, and would tout a poor pipe as being great for some reason they made up. Their best quality is salesmanship. For low prices check smoke1.co.uk. But because of shipping costs it only pays to buy large orders from them.

    Smoking pipes IS the Savinelli distributor for the USA .... they have the best pics to see the pipe you're buying . I've bought from them often without a problem . Buy it before you go cause chances are , especially in Rome , you'll pay more . Rome is serious about high prices for tourists . It's the screw the tourists capital of Europe , where as Disney is our screw job capital

    While I totally agree with you ruffinogold I would pay more for a Sav from the shop in Rome just to have as a special momento. Especially if it was an uncommon US shape.

    Amazon.com usually has a broad selection of Savinellis which seem to be reasonably priced. I hasten to add that I haven't bought pipes through them before.

    I totally agree ! The Savinelli Italian site has a number of finishes that are not in the states ... For sure , I would nab one of those in Italy , and when someone asked .. " Man , where did ya get that ! " ... I'd say .. " I got it in Rome as a gift from the Pope after having been invited there to debate the validity of the Tridentine Mass and how we need to go back to it , but I lost cause he's such a liberal " :beck:
