Rossi: Lucca (8611 EX) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-11989
A bold bent Dublin of hearty proportions, Rossi's "8611" is modeled after Savinelli's "611 KS" design and offers a substantial, three-quarter bent stem-and-shank combination for comfortable balance. The bowl flares softly from the firm Italian heel in almost Billiard fashion, but with just enough expansion to know it's a Dublin. With a high-set transition reaching halfway up the bowl, it's a Dublin meant for long, comfortable smokes — especially in the case of this EX-sized rendition.
Similar to the Vittoria finish, Rossi's Lucca series presents this pipe in a dark-stained rustication that does well to maintain the silhouette's clean lines while offering intriguing texture in hand. Where the Lucca differs, however, is in the addition of a flashy chrome accent ring, contrasting elegantly against the dark hue of the stummel. Furthermore, all pipes within the Lucca line boast EX size designations — keeping the shape and relative proportions intact, but lending this piece an even more substantial presence that results in larger chamber dimensions.- Chuck Stanion
