Rossi: Sitting (8101) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-11312
Rossi's "8101" Billiard is a muscular take on the shape chart standard — undeniably Italian in its execution, evidenced by the robust bowl and firm heel underneath. Taken from Savinelli's "101" design, such shaping cues also call to mind Savinelli's "141 KS" Billiard, only here, the bowl of the "8101" has a much stouter appearance due to the shank being considerably thicker, continuing the hearty precedent set by the bowl. This piece is also one of the shortest Billiards offered by Rossi, making it a substantial pipe that houses a good bit of chamber, while still being easily manageable and relatively compact.
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
