With the "320", Savinelli is among the few that have really kept the traditional Author shape alive: a rotund, almost ball-like bowl, paired with a short, fat shank and bent stem. Many pipe companies seem to stick with one style and simply stain it different colors and adorn it with various ferrules and whatnot to achieve different results, but Savinelli really thinks a little more deeply about pairing rustication with the other aspects of the pipe. This really shows in the Roma, with a fairly low-profile rustication matched to a minimal accent of brass trim, lending this series a simple beauty. Can be used with or without Savinelli 6mm balsa (10 pack & non filter adapter included). Made in Italy.
