    I don't know anything about the older 614s, Jesper, but it's a Sad shape that's been around for quite some time, me thinks. I had my sights on getting a new Venere smooth 614, but kept putting it off and now it's no longer available.

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    Both very very nice ! Always be grateful at post offices allover the world,.. I would keep the stamps of the packaging.
    Thanks very much, Ludwig. Actually there are no stamps to keep as they're usually shipped with GLS and they just use address labels.

    And when I go to the mailbox...all I get is junk mail...sigh...I like your post office better than mine!
    Congrats on the new pipes! Hope they smoke as well as they look!
    Thanks very much, Sonny. That's why I buy all these pipes. A comfort among all the junk mail and the bills. So far, it works like a charm.
    I'm quite convinced that they'll smoke well and they'll be put to the test later this evening.

    It might be possible that I got it mixed up with a Castello, come to think of it.

    I had my sights on getting a new Venere smooth 614, but kept putting it off and now it's no longer available.
    The axact same thing I did when I saw the first Savinelli Sea Corals back in 1980, I think it was. When I finally decided to splurge out, they were no longer manufactured.
    I never learn.

    Sea Corals first, then Capri? I've always thought Ercole Bogni had something to do with creating these finishes for Savinelli.

    Thank you, Anthony. At the moment of writing, I am enjoying the Savinelli and it does seem to get on well with the three nuns.
