Rossi: Siracusa (8315)
Product Number: 002-577-6170
Rossi's interpretation of the Prince, the "8315" (the "315 KS" in Savinelli's portfolio) provides all the plump, in-hand comfort of the shape, with more emphasis placed on the heel than classic English versions. The heel extends forward for a broader base and lower center of gravity, while the moderately sized shank leads to a willowy, tapered stem, and the vertically compressed bowl presents a lower profile in silhouette. It maintains a staunch profile, making for a bolder rendition compared to traditional Anglo-French interpretations.
Named after Syracuse, the historic city located in southeastern Sicily, Rossi's Siracusa series is characterized by its rich, inviting finish and jet-black, vulcanite mouthpiece. A trim band of brass adds a hint of flash to the warm color palette in a tastefully reserved manner while beautifully complementing the stummel's color. All of these features create an aesthetic that's timeless and thoroughly traditional no matter what century this pipe finds itself in.- Chuck Stanion
