Haven't met a bad smoking Savinelli yet. I really dig the looks of the Capri Root Briar too. I say as long as you like it, then I wouldn't hesitate spending 38 dollars on any Savinelli.

Tough to say without seeing it. But if it's in decent enough shape that it will clean up well, $38 should be a nice price.

I have exactly one Capri root briar - a bent pot. It is a very nice pipe.

It sounds like a good price and of course a Savinelli is a damn fine pipe

+1 on the YES... if it's in good condition, that sounds like a good price on that pipe.

That is an excellent price for a Savinelli in good shape & a root briar to boot!
If it's your desired style of pipe then I wouldn't hesitate. Grab it before someone else beats you to it.

+1 on Savs being nice pipes. I say it wholly depends on the condition of the pipe you are looking at. If it is good, I would snap it up at that price.
