Rossi: Lucca (8315 EX) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-13548
Rossi's interpretation of the Prince, the "8315" (the "315 KS" in Savinelli's portfolio) provides all the plump, in-hand comfort of the shape, with more emphasis placed on the heel than classic English versions, with this EX-sized example offering even more muscularity and chamber depth. The heel extends forward for a broader base and lower center of gravity, while the moderately sized shank leads to a willowy, tapered stem, and the vertically compressed bowl presents a lower profile in silhouette. It maintains a staunch profile, making for a bolder rendition compared to traditional Anglo-French interpretations.
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.- Chuck Stanion
