Rossi: Rubino Antico (8104) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-12909
Rossi's "8104" shape designation corresponds to Savinelli's "104" design and is a Billiard that showcases the Italian pipe making tradition's approach to classic English and French shapes. The basic Billiard form is maintained in the rigid, upright bowl; however, the proportions have been slightly altered as the shank and stem are a touch more slender and the bowl a tad taller. It makes for a dramatic visual effect and draws more attention to the bowl, while still preserving the shape's streamlined look in profile.
As pipe makers develop and grow over decades, it's natural to innovate and improve finishes within a marque's portfolio, maintaining the same beloved aesthetic while bettering the processes and overall results. The Rubino Antico series is Rossi's upgraded Rubino line, offering the same ruby-and-chrome color palette but with notable improvements. The smooth, hand-brushed finish offers a glossy sheen and, while boldly saturated, handsomely reveals the briar's natural grain underneath, presenting a timeless palette that calls to mind smooth finishes of pipe making's early years.-Truett Smith
