Rossi: Piccolo (8112) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-13012
Rossi's "8112" is a trim, lightweight, and lithely bent Billiard that takes inspiration from traditional, old-school French proportions with its svelte shaping. It corresponds with Savinelli's "112" shape and is a drastic departure from their penchant for robust, muscular forms, yet perfectly demonstrates the Italian marque's versatility and the diversity found within their shape chart. The gentle, elegant arch of the mouthpiece accentuates its classic appeal while still remaining easily pocketable and travel-friendly.
The Italian tradition of pipe making has never lacked in regards to substantial pipes, and the shape charts of Rossi and Savinelli are considerably saturated with KS- and EX-sized briars that don't disappoint when it comes to palm-filling presence. However, not everyone desires hearty, larger forms, so Rossi presents the Piccolo line — a series devoted to petite Savinelli shapes now offered by Rossi. Dressed in the same rugged rustication as the Vittoria finish, the Piccolo series rounds out Rossi's portfolio, ensuring that Rossi pipes cater to all preferences.-Truett Smith
