Rossi: Rubino (8111) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-577-6880
A classically inclined, deep-chambered rendition of the timeless Billiard, Rossi's "8111" is a bold take on the shape chart standard and is proudly Italian in its execution, aligning with the "111 KS" from Savinelli. The towering bowl commands much of the shape's visual weight, paired to a comparatively slimmer, round shank and tapered mouthpiece. The "8111" is closely related to the marque's "8104" Billiard, with the primary difference being that this "8111" is slightly longer and contains more muscular proportions throughout. Such features are ideal for fans of traditional pipe designs who also prefer an arrangement that offers more chamber depth for longer smokes and a substantial presence 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.- Jeffery Sitts
