Rossi: Lucca (8111 EX) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-12748
A classically inclined, deep-chambered rendition of the timeless Billiard, Rossi's "8111" is a bold take on the shape-chart standard and is proudly Italian in its execution, aligning with the "111 KS" from Savinelli. The towering bowl commands much of the shape's visual weight, paired to a comparatively slimmer, round shank and a tapered mouthpiece, and such an aesthetic is accentuated even further in this extra-large, EX-sized piece. The "8111" is closely related to the marque's "8104" Billiard, with the primary difference being that this "8111" is slightly longer and contains more muscular proportions throughout. Such features are ideal for fans of traditional pipe designs who also prefer an arrangement that offers more chamber depth for longer smokes and a substantial presence in hand.
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.-Truett Smith
