Rossi: Salerno (8626)
Product Number: 002-577-6948
While Rossi features several bent Apples on their standard shape chart, this "8626" is their signature, archetypal rendition, aligning with Savinelli's "626" form. It's also the trimmest version offered by the Italian marque, presenting a leaner disposition compared to, say, the "8636" and leaning more into the traditional English style. Defined by a slightly bulging bowl, stretched heel and transition, and lithely bent stem, this iconic "8626" is a versatile piece of moderate size and natural in-hand feel — perfect for those interested in an Italian-made pipe but one of more restrained, classic proportions.
Like Rossi's Vittoria series, the Salerno line offers pipes dressed in a textured rustication, but one that's more light-depth, offering a tasteful reservation and elegant disposition. Maintaining the lines of the shape, the finish presents just the right amount of intrigue in hand without distracting from the overall form itself, and it pairs wonderfully with the trim brass accent about the stem base, matching the hues of Rossi's emblem.-Truett Smith
