Rossi: Vittoria (8815) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-13898
A hybridized rendition of the classic Lumberman, Rossi's "8815" is the same design as Savinelli's "815 KS," and it offers similar dimensions and a profile akin to their "8803" version. However, the "8815" trades the characteristically oval shank for one that's neatly paneled, adding a Foursquare-like structure to the design. The bowl remains rounded still, contrasting the firm lines of the shank, overall making for a Lumberman that maintains a traditional air but with its own subtle sense of individuality.
Rossi's Vittoria line is a no-nonsense series that prioritizes timeless traditionalism and a conservative presentation that draws focus to this pipe's line and form. Marked by a dark stain and rugged rustication, the Vittoria offers just the right amount of texture in hand. It remains balanced between traditional Italian and English pipe making styles — the rustication calling to mind the dramatic, extra-craggy finishes often seen throughout Italian pipe making, but the lighter depth hewing closer to the stately English aesthetic — with the dark palette and grooved surface hiding any handling marks this piece might pick up over the years.-Truett Smith
