    I bought yet another 320. They smoke so nice and look pretty darn good too. This time, I bought the regular size. All the rest of my 320’s are EX size.

    Make aromatics great again.

    Shape addiction is a terrible trap to fall into. Lovely addition there.

    Nice little trio!

    Would the 321 smoke just as good?

    Ok here's where I get confused with the 320. I know there's a KS and an EX, and the KS is quite a substantial sized pipe itself. I've heard mention before of a regular 320. Is the regular 320 the KS? Because I've never seen one that wasn't a KS or EX. And if your new one is a KS then the EX is massive. My 320s are KS.

    Edit to add: Oh yeah! Sorry Congratulations! It's a beautiful example of a 320. Enjoy the heck out of it!

    I have three 320’s, two Estellas and a sandblasted Giubileo D’Oro and all three are marked KS, though the Estellas are about 30% larger than the Giubileo D’Oro.

    @anthony
    The new one doesn’t have a KS stamping. So I’m guessing they have a small, medium, large?

    @Philo
    I’d like to see that Estella. I love the rustication style of the Estella model.

    Bonanza, nice work on that refurb!

    Nice one, Dave. Congrats! The stem appears to be more straight along the bottom curve than what I'm used to seeing on a 320. Is that accurate or just a trick of the photo angle?

    RESPECT THE PIPE!

    Nice addition. Looks great!
    I just sold my Savinelli 320 Trevi Smooth. It was a nice pipe, but the finish was wearing off, and the fills were really visible and it was annoying me. It will be a great pipe for someone else though.

    Nice! I have a 320KS Panama with the metal rim. Didn't realise how much bigger the EX actually is when compared with the KS.
    @metalhead
    Had a low end Pete with a fill or two popping out that also annoyed me, fixed it with a Sharpie.

    Nice addition. Which series is this from?
    Also, damn nice stand.

    I also have developed a soft spot for the 320 shape. I now have 2 Rossis and four Savinellis, from the Oscar, Champagne and unfinished series. I just added one from the Tris series but it's still in the mail.
    I like vintage Savinelli 320s with vulcanite stems.

    @NoQuarter, does your 320 have a vulcanite or acrylic stem? I've seen them listed with both.

    I love the shape/size, especially for Pease English blends. I have two Rossi Authors, a smooth Tundra, and a really interesting pipe that combines the 320 shape with the Canadian stem.

    Sav authors in several sizes are collectively one of the most popular pipes of all. They're a little heavy for my whim, but they sure are pretty. I have a Pete, a Kaywoodie, and a Luciano author.

    Congrats on your new Author. I have the Rossi version and a Sav 2016 Christmas one. Great pipes.

    Nice pipe. I've got a couple author shaped pipes and they are some of my favorites.

    I like the idea of the 321 which is a smaller 320 the only problem is they tend to be too shallow.

    Nice! I just purchased a Pietro 320 from p&c but have yet to touch flame to it. Love the shape and feel of a 320.

    Great choice Dave. The 320 is quickly becoming one of my favorite briar pipes.

    Metalhead: Similarly I have one Savinelli Tre canadian,eventually all finish was wearing off,though no visible pits or fills,then I have this smaller Savinelli 321 Dolomite,and again,the finish partially wearing off,I went ahead and removed all the coatings with acetone,again this had no pits or fills and as expected from Savinelli both those smoke very nicely.
