Got the winning bid on an estate Savinelli Non Pareil 9408 last night. Anyone have any experience with one of these? It looks in great shape from the pics, and I got it for a song compared to buying new.

Hello weldtchr!

Are we talking about one of those beautiful Savinelli 9408 with that horn-mount? Maybe you can post a link to that auction or a picture of that pipe?

All I can personally say about this specific Savinelli is, that I unfortunately donīt own one myself. But in my opinion itīs one of the most beautiful Savinelli pipes ever made. A perfect example for italian stile.

I still nearly canīt believe, that the German Department of Health prohibited horn in relation with foodstuff a couple of years ago - and that ban effects the use of horn related to pipes as well. But luckily meanwhile most pipemakers donīt really seem to care about it.

Iīm looking foreward to see your Savinelli 9408.

Kind regards
Thilo

I have no experience of this pipe but I can tell you ANY and EVERY Savinelli is a good pipe. I adore them and the ones I've got are super smokers.

Enjoy your new pipe, I envy you cheers

Harlock that is almost the same model pipe in the picture you posted, horn mount and all. I won the auction for $35.00, wish I could find deals like that all the time!

Very nice, Harlock! Is the stem on your Bella horn too or is that Lucite? Anyway - the picture is pure Pipe-Pornography. This thread should be x-rated.
Congratulations weldtchr and Harlock! I think Iīll need such a horn-mount Savinelli.

Lucite, and unfortunately, I sold that one a while back. Not because it was a bad pipe, I just needed money...for more pipes!

PS : Non Pareils are beautiful pipes, IMHO.

But they dropped using horn in the early 1980s in a cost-cutting move to stay abreast of inflation.

The horn itself wasn't expensive, but pressing & shaping it was labor-inten$ive so they went with using acrylic instead. Which is actually a better material for that application. Much better.

What a Face
