Rossi: Sera (8626) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-13830
While Rossi features several bent Apples on their standard shape chart, this "8626" is their signature, archetypal rendition, aligning with Savinelli's "626" form. It's also the trimmest version offered by the Italian marque, presenting a leaner disposition compared to, say, the "8636" and leaning more into the traditional English style. Defined by a slightly bulging bowl, stretched heel and transition, and lithely bent stem, this iconic "8626" is a versatile piece of moderate size and natural in hand feel — perfect for those interested in an Italian-made pipe but one of more restrained, classic proportions.
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
