Rossi: Salerno (8616)
Product Number: 002-577-5672
One of the most full-bodied examples of Rossi's approach to the bent Billiard, the "8616" dramatizes the standard form with especially robust proportions. It features a hearty bowl and generous chamber with an equally plump shank-and-stem combination. It's noticeably more muscular and deep-chambered compared to the marque's other bent Billiards like the "8606," "8670," and "8602" designs. The "8616" offers plenty of reinforcing briar at its chamber walls, transition, and shank, filling the palm with ease and exemplifying what it means to be considered an iconic Italian bent Billiard.
Like Rossi's Vittoria series, the Salerno line offers pipes dressed in a textured rustication, but one that's more light-depth, offering a tasteful reservation and elegant disposition. Maintaining the lines of the shape, the finish presents just the right amount of intrigue in hand without distracting from the overall form itself, and it pairs wonderfully with the trim brass accent about the stem base, matching the hues of Rossi's emblem.- Jeffery Sitts
