Rossi: Mezzanotte (8409) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-15017
Rossi's "8409" Dublin displays rather traditional proportions — the stoutness of the shank quite balanced and consistent in comparison to the bowl's height. Such a design makes this "8409" a considerably more classically English-styled rendition compared to other shapes in the Italian marque's portfolio, and it's perfect for lovers of timeless shape-chart standards who appreciate Rossi's history of reliable and stylish smoking pipes.
Introduced in 2023, Rossi's Mezzanotte 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 Mezzanotte series appropriately translates to "Midnight" in Italian and 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
