Rossi: Sera (8106) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-15138
While Italian pipes are popularly known for their dramatic, bowl-centric sense of proportions, Rossi's "8106" leans more into the classic English design. It aligns with Savinelli's "106" rendition, and compared to the Rossi's other straight Billiards, like the "8101" and "8111," the "8106" is rendered in trimmer style, with more balanced proportions between bowl and shank. It's a wonderful rendition of the classic form, archetypically English and perfect for those interested in the value and quality of Rossi but prefer a more conservative, reserved size.
Introduced in 2022, Rossi's Sera series offers pipes in a rugged rustication and a rich stain of varying chestnut and mahogany hues. The dark presentation evokes the line's name — meaning "nightfall" in Italian — with the graduated tones calling to mind the onset of dusk. It's a reserved and stately presentation, lent added refinement by a trim metal accent along the shank end, and while the craggy rustication offers rugged appeal and everyday durability, the traditional color palette makes this Sera pipe fit for any and every occasion.-Truett Smith
