Rossi: Sitting (8701) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-577-8406
Showcasing Rossi's typical, neoclassic shaping style, this "701" highlights the defining characteristics of the traditional Lovat: The Billiard bowl is lent added height thanks to the slender shank and trim transition, while the shank's elongated length and the abbreviated saddle stem leave little doubt as to whether or not this is a Lovat. It's a bolder, more dramatic take on the English shape chart standard, offering palm-filling substance and a crisp, eye-catching profile.
Rossi's Sitting series revolves around practicality, offering shapes that are designed to sit stably on flat surfaces — with flattened panels along either the bowl's heel or shank's underside. The series is also characterized by a dark-stained rustication, similar to the Italian marque's Lucca and Vittoria lines, which provides a stimulating tactile experience in hand and should disguise any handling marks that might accumulate over time. Whether you're looking for a new desk pipe or a versatile briar that can handle your lifestyle, Rossi's Sitting pipes are some of the most pragmatic and efficient smoking instruments on the market.-Truett Smith
