Rossi: Sitting (8622) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-577-8633
Compared to other Italian pipe makers, Rossi and Savinelli fashion shapes that hew closer to traditional English and French standards of proportions. While much of Italian pipe design opts for dramatic and stylized renditions of classic shapes — with bowls that are starkly taller and broader and shanks that are comparatively more slender — Rossi presents more balanced dimensions in their pipes, leaning slightly toward this Italian design cue but still remaining quite true to tradition. This "8622" bent Pot is an excellent example of Savinelli's devotion to classic shaping and is perhaps the most English-styled shape on the Italian marque's chart, aligning with the "622 KS" from Savinelli. The proportions between the stout shank and hearty bowl are balanced and consistent, neither dominating the visual weight, and it remains a comfortable piece when clenched thanks to the stem's downward turn and angle of the transition — offering a deeper bend than Savinelli's other bent Pots, the "8121" and "8122" designs.
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
