Rossi: Sitting (8824) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-14344
Embodying Rossi's imaginative approach to traditional shapes, the "8824" is, in essence, a bent Lumberman — interpreting the pipe chart standard through a more playfully dramatic lens. The stummel remains rooted in tradition, with the elongated, oval shank giving way to a tall, tapered, Brandy-esque bowl. The aforementioned shank is broad and robust, yet serves to place much of the visual weight on the towering, deep-chambered bowl up front, and it further accentuates the bowl's powerful presence in profile. The abbreviated saddle stem displays a gentle bend, its subtle downturn emphasizing the bowl's prominent heel and providing excellent balance to allow for more comfortable clenching.
Rossi's Sitting series revolves around practicality, offering shapes that are designed to sit stably on flat surfaces — with flattened panels along either the bowl's heel or shank's underside. The series is also characterized by a dark-stained rustication, similar to the Italian marque's Lucca and Vittoria lines, which provides a stimulating tactile experience in hand and should disguise any handling marks that might accumulate over time. Whether you're looking for a new desk pipe or a versatile briar that can handle your lifestyle, Rossi's Sitting pipes are some of the most pragmatic and efficient smoking instruments on the market.-Truett Smith
