Rossi: Vittoria (8670)
Product Number: 002-577-6320
A firm-heeled bent Billiard, Rossi's "8670" presents a bold profile that's handsomely classic, in line with Savinelli's "670 KS" design. Traditionally inclined and exceptionally well-balanced, the stout bowl houses a capacious chamber while the stem's bend allows for a comfortable hands-free smoking posture. Not as muscular as the marque's "8616" or as diminutive as the "8601," the "8670" instead strikes an ideal balance between the two, offering a respectably robust interpretation that's also capable of being clenched with ease.
Rossi's Vittoria line is a no-nonsense series that prioritizes timeless traditionalism and a conservative presentation that draws focus to this pipe's line and form. Marked by a dark stain and rugged rustication, the Vittoria offers just the right amount of texture in hand. It remains balanced between traditional Italian and English pipemaking styles — the rustication calling to mind the dramatic, extra-craggy finishes often seen throughout Italian pipemaking, but the lighter depth hewing closer to the stately English aesthetic — with the dark palette and grooved surface hiding any handling marks this piece might pick up over the years.- Jeffery Sitts
