Rossi: Rubino (8404) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-577-6243
A Zulu, Woodstock, or Yachtsman, depending on what traditional shape chart you're inclined toward, Rossi's "8404" aligns with Savinelli's "404" design and features a subtle, elegant bend in the shank and stem arrangement, and smooth, gradual curves at the transition for a seamless connection to the bowl. That bowl rises in a slight forward cant, more upright than the traditional Zulu form, but still displaying the Dublin-like flare toward the rim, resulting in a remarkably easy grip in hand.
In Italian, rubino means "ruby," and Rossi's Rubino series appropriately dresses each pipe in an alluring, ruby-tinged stain. The Rubino's dark, smoky matte finish provides a subtle contrast and warmth, along with a superb smoothness in hand, hearkening back to the smooth finishes of yesteryear. A bright nickel band accents the base of the vulcanite mouthpiece, resulting in a refined but unpretentious look with a broad appeal that exudes timeless charm.- Chuck Stanion
