Rossi: Rubino (8122) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-577-7144
Rossi's "8122" bent Pot corresponds to Savinelli's "122" shape and combines muscularity and elegance for a striking design — the broad, robust bowl being paired to a lithely bent shank-and-stem combination. In keeping with the marque's signature Italian neoclassic approach to shaping, Rossi has rendered the heel with a firm, jutting disposition, while softening the shape's profile through the use of a gently downturned stem. Such a design cue gives the form a look that calls to mind the classic Prince shape in profile. The "8122" is nearly identical to the marque's "8121" bent Pot, but the primary difference between the two is that the "8122" here features a bowl with a more modest width, offering the shape's characteristically broad chamber but with a more compact presence.
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
