Rossi: Rubino Antico (8677) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-13667
A bent Billiard with a supple, Brandy-like taper toward the rim, Rossi's "8677" is a compact yet full-bodied take on the classic English shape, corresponding to the "677 KS" on Savinelli's shape chart. Per the Italian marque's shaping conventions, Rossi has elaborated on the standard bent Billiard design, adding mass to the base and transition with extra height and taper lent to the bowl, all paired to one of their signature triangular shanks. With plenty of chamber but in a convenient overall size, this "8677" maintains a traditional profile imbued with just enough accenting touches to make it the distinctive work of Rossi.
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
