    Good evening, gents! Winding up the day with some Rattray's Highland Targe in a trusty old Savinelli Roma 920KS Dublin. This one feels so light and clenches so well that I got curious about it's actual weight, so I broke out Jessica's food scale and checked it out. I first checked out some pipes with similar capacities - a Neerup Brandy and my RDP Author - and found them to be between 60 and 70-odd grams each. The Roma was indeed substantially lighter, weighing in at a meager 40 grams. It's only 2 grams heavier than my 706 Roma, a long-stemmed Billiard with a much smaller bowl capacity. Interesting.

    Good morning to you all.
    First smoke of this overcast day; 'Blue Capstan Ready Rubbed' in a huge Preben Holm 'Traditional - Hand Made in Denmark'.

    Hello,

    When I got my first Savinellis, i also noticed that for a given bowl size, and even for a given amount of wood, they are remarkably light in weight.

    I'm smoking the Work in Progress mix in a Danske Club Vario. It's made by Stanwell and the same shape numbers apply, an 11 in this case. I once got it for my father as a gift.

    Best wishes
    Markus

    Daylight Savings Time. Doesn't take much.

    Looks like I'll have to change my planned itinerary for the day.
