Rossi: Vittoria (8409)
Product Number: 002-577-11719
Rossi's "8409" Dublin displays rather traditional proportions — the stoutness of the shank quite balanced and consistent in comparison to the bowl's height. Such a design makes this "8409" a considerably more classically English-styled rendition compared to other shapes in the Italian marque's portfolio, and it's perfect for lovers of timeless shape-chart standards who appreciate Rossi's history of reliable and stylish smoking pipes.
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.-Truett Smith
