Rossi: Sitting (8811) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-12969
Like Rossi's "8315" Prince, the "8811" displays a slightly angled transition and downturned stem, making for a lithe, elegant profile. This piece, though, fits a tall Billiard bowl on the end in place of the Prince's squat, Apple-like form — this particular Billiard being more slender and svelte than many of the Italian marque's other iterations. It shares the same form as Savinelli's "811 KS" design and is one of Rossi's more streamlined pieces, full of sleek dynamism and offering a lightweight presence and classic shaping style overall.
Rossi's Sitting series revolves around practicality, offering shapes that are designed to sit stably on flat surfaces — with flattened panels along either the bowl's heel or shank's underside. The series is also characterized by a dark-stained rustication, similar to the Italian marque's Lucca and Vittoria lines, which provides a stimulating tactile experience in hand and should disguise any handling marks that might accumulate over time. Whether you're looking for a new desk pipe or a versatile briar that can handle your lifestyle, Rossi's Sitting pipes are some of the most pragmatic and efficient smoking instruments on the market.-Truett Smith
