Rossi: Rubino Antico (8802) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-577-8837
The bold, svelte "8802" Canadian from Rossi aligns with Savinelli's "802" design and presents a classic shape with a bit of Italian styling in its prominent heel. The long, oval shank maintains low altitude at the transition, reinforcing the august ascension of the bowl as a distinct element. Offering subtle ridgelines along each side of the shank for a bit of structural foundation, this classic English shape has been ably rendered in striking Italian style.
As pipe makers develop and grow over decades, it's natural to innovate and improve finishes within a marque's portfolio, maintaining the same beloved aesthetic while bettering the processes and overall results. The Rubino Antico series is Rossi's upgraded Rubino line, offering the same ruby-and-chrome color palette but with notable improvements. The smooth, hand-brushed finish offers a glossy sheen and, while boldly saturated, handsomely reveals the briar's natural grain underneath, presenting a timeless palette that calls to mind smooth finishes of pipe making's early years.- Chuck Stanion
