Rossi: Rubino (8104) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-577-7175
Rossi's "8104" shape designation corresponds to Savinelli's "104" design and is a Billiard that showcases the Italian pipe making tradition's approach to classic English and French shapes. The basic Billiard form is maintained in the rigid, upright bowl; however, the proportions have been slightly altered as the shank and stem are a touch more slender and the bowl a tad taller. It makes for a dramatic visual effect and draws more attention to the bowl, while still preserving the shape's streamlined look in profile.
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
