Rossi: Rubino Antico (8701) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-13347
Showcasing Rossi's typical, neoclassic shaping style, this "701" highlights the defining characteristics of the traditional Lovat: The Billiard bowl is lent added height thanks to the slender shank and trim transition, while the shank's elongated length and the abbreviated saddle stem leave little doubt as to whether or not this is a Lovat. It's a bolder, more dramatic take on the English shape-chart standard, offering palm-filling substance and a crisp, eye-catching 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
