The author shaped pipe has quickly become Savinelli's most recognizable pipe. This 320 KS finds sanctuary in the Roma collection. Influenced by the city of Rome, this pipe sports a dark walnut stain, that has a bit of red coloration added, and a very smooth finished chamber rim.

I bought this because I loved my Marron Glace 320 KS so much that I needed another one to prevent burning it out from smoking it too much because it rocks! The Roma 320 KS smokes completely differently. The Roma sucks. It has a tighter draw, a narrower mouthpiece (it will not pass a tapered cleaner without pliers), and the filter has to be positioned just right or it blocks any draw at all. It's a lot of work, and I have dumped several partially-smoked bowls from the Roma because I was not enjoying them. Never had any issue with my Marron Glace, always effortlessly enjoyed it. The 320 KS shape can be great, but the Roma version sucks!
I own a Marron Glace 320 KS and I love it. My Roma sucks, at least with a filter. The thing has a super-tight draw and burns hotter than a mother. My Marron Glace is awesome with a filter. I have no clue why the Roma is so different when both are the same shape from Savinelli. I wish I never bought the stupid Roma.
Wow! What a fantastic pipe. Breaking In beautifully and will become one of my favorite pipes. The 320’s great reputation is true. My first Savienilli, but not my last!
It's a really nice looking pipe and lightweight. It holds a lot of tobacco giving you a long smoke. I have an issue with moisture building up in it though. No matter what type of tobacco I smoke going filter or filterless regardless of how I pack it about halfway through a bowl I have to run a pipe cleaner through the stem because it gets plugged up. Not what I was expecting from a Savinelli. I really want to like this pipe. Maybe it's me who knows but I don't have this problem with my other pipes.
I use this pipe primarily for my aromatics and so far so good! It definitely looks nice and I love the way it holds in my hand. I also like how it sits well on its own without a pipe stand. Which is a big plus for me when I'm sitting out on my porch and have to put it down real quick. The only reason why it didn't get 5 stars is b/c the gold band on the stem was loose when I received it. I had to go through a Savinelli distributor to get a replacement, which will leave me without this pipe for 2 weeks while they replace it.
I really enjoy this pipe. It has a pretty deep bowl, to pack it can sometimes take more than the three layer method. The cake is taking shape nicely. I feel I've made a good first investment of pipe smoking.
The 320 and all the hype I now understand. This is a great pipe, large beefy with a big bowl. She smokes like a dream and fits in the hand great. I love the Roma series for the value and they look great.
