Rossi: Vittoria (8403) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-12398
Rossi's "8403" bent Billiard is a gracile, elegant take on the timeless shape chart standard and is similar in form to Savinelli's "403" Churchwarden design. The primary difference between the designs is that the "8403" is significantly shorter in length, making it an ideal choice for fans of graceful shapes who are drawn to pipes of more standard length. The Billiard bowl is traditionally shaped and contains a respectably deep chamber within while the stem's soft downturn balances the composition quite nicely.
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
