Rossi: Sera (8311) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-13684
Rossi's "8311" Poker, much like Savinelli's "311 KS" design, is a resolute, yet dynamic take on the classic utilitarian shape characterized by the bowl's pronounced forward cant and succinct saddle stem displaying the lightest hint of downward turn. Its sturdy sitting capability makes it the perfect desk pipe while the crisply chamfered rim echoes the firm aesthetic of the defined transition and cylindrical bowl. It's also a slightly more compact offering compared to the Italian marque's other Poker design, the "8310" which displays a raised, rounded rim and a slightly longer downturned stem. While the "8311" is somewhat downsized, it certainly doesn't sacrifice anything in regards to chamber depth or its charming practicality.
Introduced in 2022, Rossi's Sera series offers pipes in a rugged rustication and a rich stain of varying chestnut and mahogany hues. The dark presentation evokes the line's name — meaning "nightfall" in Italian — with the graduated tones calling to mind the onset of dusk. It's a reserved and stately presentation, lent added refinement by a trim metal accent along the shank end, and while the craggy rustication offers rugged appeal and everyday durability, the traditional color palette makes this Sera pipe fit for any and every occasion.-Truett Smith
