Rossi: Notte (8677) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-14572
A bent Billiard with a supple, Brandy-like taper toward the rim, Rossi's "8677" is a compact yet full-bodied take on the classic English shape and corresponds to Savinelli's "677 KS." Per the Italian marque's shaping conventions, Rossi has elaborated on the standard design, adding mass to the base and transition with extra height and taper lent to the bowl, all paired to one of their signature triangular shanks. With plenty of chamber but in a convenient overall size, this "8677" maintains a traditional profile imbued with just enough accenting touches to make it the distinctive work of Rossi.
Introduced to Rossi's portfolio in 2019, the Notte series presents an alluring palette of dark, stormy hues. Meaning "night" in Italian, the Notte offers an aptly dark aesthetic, pairing a smoky smooth stain with a jet-black acrylic mouthpiece — a trim brass accent ring adding just a touch of brightness, like a sliver of moon at midnight. The stain, while dark, still reveals the briar's natural grain on this piece, emulating the look of swirling clouds within a night's black sky for a powerful and mysterious disposition.-Truett Smith
