Rossi: Vittoria (8320)
Product Number: 002-577-8917
The "8320," Rossi's rendition of Savinelli's signature "320 KS," is a thoroughly Italian take on the classic Author shape, pairing a plump, well-rounded bowl to an equally robust shank-and-stem combination. It's a properly full-bodied rendition, featuring soft, supple curves throughout its hearty proportions and bold, masculine lines. The "8320" is, in essence, a more substantial, muscular take on the Italian marque's other Author design, the "8321." Reassuringly stout in hand, and housing an impressively broad chamber, it's the perfect pipe to sit back and relax with — the epitome of a comfort pipe and considered a defining, signature shape among Rossi's portfolio.
Rossi's Vittoria line is a no-nonsense series that prioritizes timeless traditionalism and a conservative presentation that draws focus to this pipe's line and form. Marked by a dark stain and rugged rustication, the Vittoria offers just the right amount of texture in hand. It remains balanced between traditional Italian and English pipe making styles — the rustication calling to mind the dramatic, extra-craggy finishes often seen throughout Italian pipe making, but the lighter depth hewing closer to the stately English aesthetic — with the dark palette and grooved surface hiding any handling marks this piece might pick up over the years.- Jeffery Sitts
