Received the pipe today, it's in perfect condition (there is a bit of a sweetish ghost, so what?) and I now have my 6 Punto's and 12 Savinelli's. I'm finished buying for 2013 as far as pipes are concerned Sad 

Brother Monbla, you've lit a fire in my ass with your remark. The only way I can extinguish this fire is by buying at least one Giubleo D' Oro to see/taste what it's like. I will start the hunt in January next Laughing

That's the way !! Twisted Evil  The Guibleo 'D Oro's were /are equal to the Autographs, briar and finish wise just were done in the traditional shapes not freehand as the Autographs. They are the top of the line for Savinelli in traditional shapes. I have 3 and they can spoil ya Twisted Evil They usually have almost solid straight grain and are hand finished as the Punto Oro's and Autographs. I'd say they are EQUAL to ANY Dunhill or Charatan of years past. Looking forward to seeing what ya find next year Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

It was quite a battle to upload the picture, so I forgot the message:  Embarassed 

The 6 pipes on the left are the Punto's.  

Out of the 12 only 4 were purchased new with the rest, of course, estates.

My brother in law is busy making me a pipe rack which can host 50 pipes.  Once it's finished I will stick 50 of my top favourite beauties in it and post another picture Laughing

Beautiful collection! cheers 

I don't own any Sav's but now I think I have the urge to add one to my rack. I especially like their classic bulldog design.

That is a great collection of Savinelli's. Congrats on getting to number 12. The first pipe I ever bought was a Sav and I still own it. It will always hold a special place in my collection. Bang for the buck, it is hard to beat Savinelli.

Since this photo was "published", I was gifted another Punt Oro and I've bought a crippled DeLuxe Milano. As soon as the Milano arrives, I will post an update.

Sorry to hear you have so many Sav's, I know it must be frustrating for you.
Maybe I'll send you one of the two POS's Sav's I have so you can have an even 13.

Maybe you did not notice but I already have 14 Savinnelli pipes. But 15 is also a good number, so I will PM you my postal address.

I'm really happy to be part of this forum and friends with guys like you, Carta! Sav's are not really so expensive but still, the pipe you're going to send me must have cost you a bit.

Thank you, my bro'.  cheers

I've several Savinelli's -- a Bing's Favorite, an old twin-bore Punto Oro billiard/lovat, an as yet unsmoked NOS Savinelli Straight Grain "O" 815 KS and a Giubileo d'Oro 320 KS. I love 'em all.

Congratulations on your Savs --enjoy  Wink

Just bought my first Sav - a Tortuga 315. The only problem I've had with it is that I haven't had the time to smoke it! If it's as good of a pipe that I think it's going to be, I have my eye on a Clark Gable.

I've heard great things about the Savs and your collection seems to prove it!
