Rossi: Rubino (8802) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-577-6967
The bold, svelte "8802" Canadian from Rossi aligns with Savinelli's "802" design and presents a classic shape with a bit of Italian styling in its prominent heel. The long, oval shank maintains low altitude at the transition, reinforcing the august ascension of the bowl as a distinct element. Offering subtle ridgelines along each side of the shank for a bit of structural foundation, this classic English shape has been ably rendered in striking Italian style.
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
