Rossi: Rubino (8315) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-577-6516
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.
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
