Rossi: Rubino Antico (8316) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-13765
The primary feature of a Pot is its broad tobacco chamber, and the Rossi "8316" certainly fulfills that purpose, aligning with Savinelli's "316 KS" design. Particularly wide at the top, the chamber is conical, aligning with the shaping of the bowl, while the lithe shank-and-stem combination adds tasteful elegance through its curve. It's a remarkably organic interpretation, offering a sweeping heel and a softly-rounded rim, and all with a subtle forward momentum to keep things lively.
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.- Chuck Stanion
