Rossi: Rubino Antico (8122) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-14465
Rossi's "8122" bent Pot corresponds to Savinelli's "122" shape and combines muscularity and elegance for a striking design — the broad, robust bowl being paired to a lithe, bent shank-and-stem combination. In keeping with the marque's signature Italian neoclassic approach to shaping, Rossi has rendered the heel with firm, jutting disposition, while softening the shape's profile through the use of a gently downturned stem. Such a design cue gives the form a look that calls to mind the classic Prince shape in profile. The "8122" is nearly identical to the marque's "8121" bent Pot, but the primary difference between the two is that the "8122" here features a bowl with a more modest width, offering the shape's characteristically broad chamber but with a more compact presence.
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.-Truett Smith
