Rossi: Sitting (8644) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-15162
For all intents and purposes, the "8644" bent Brandy from Rossi is identical in form to their "8645" rendition — the main difference being the stem style. Those who prefer tapered stems will appreciate the "8645," while those drawn to saddle stems ought to consider this "8644." It's a stout, compact, and muscular bent Brandy, almost like a bent Pot but with the bowl tapering toward the rim. The robustness of the lower bowl and heel is continued through the transition and shank for a consistent aesthetic, and the S-curve ensures a well-balanced posture when clenched. It's a versatile pipe, easily stowed away when needed, and catering to those who enjoy more substantial Brandies compared to, say, the more slender, taller "8628" within the Italian marque's portfolio.
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
