Rossi: Salerno (8111)
Product Number: 002-577-6991
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.
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.- Jeffery Sitts
