Rossi: Sitting (8645) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-11236
Rossi's "8645" design, based on Savinelli's "645 KS," is a wide, stout bent Brandy interpretation, the bowl prioritizing breadth over height, yet still boasting a respectably deep chamber within. The bowl wears its waistline low before subtly tapering up toward the rim, while the transition offers ample room for the thumb to rest. Unlike the Italian marque's "8628" bent Brandy, the "8645" is a low-slung take on the classic shape with the bowl more Apple-esque in its curvature. It's an ideal choice for pipe smokers who prefer robust, substantial designs that also remain balanced and lightweight enough to be clenched comfortably in the jaw.
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
