Rossi: Piccolo (8402)
Product Number: 002-577-6048
The Rossi "8402" is a small Belge shape, aligning with the "402" design of Savinelli's shape chart. Its sinuous and lithe attitude complements the dramatic forward cant of the bowl, and the undercurve of heel and bowl present a steady curvature that travels up the far side of the bowl for the impression of a single, adroit line. Based on the design of clay pipes from earlier eras, the "8402" offers a traditional smoking experience but with more practical, pocket-friendly portability.
The Italian tradition of pipemaking has never lacked in regards to substantial pipes, and the shape charts of Rossi and Savinelli are considerably saturated with KS- and EX-sized briars that don't disappoint when it comes to palm-filling presence. However, not everyone desires hearty, larger forms, so Rossi presents the Piccolo line — a series devoted to petite Savinelli shapes now offered by Rossi. Dressed in the same rugged rustication as the Vittoria finish, the Piccolo series rounds out Rossi's portfolio, ensuring that Rossi pipes cater to all preferences.- Chuck Stanion
