Rossi: Sitting (8812) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-15230
Exemplifying Rossi's creative approach to classic shapes, the "8812" is, in essence, a bent Canadian, modeled after Savinelli's "812" design — interpreting the English shape-chart standard through a more dramatic, whimsical lens. The stummel remains rooted in tradition, with the elongated, oval shank giving way to an upright Billiard bowl. By subtly bending the abbreviated stem, though, Savinelli has effectively accentuated the firm heel at the fore and given the transition a more angled appearance in profile. Furthermore, the downturned mouthpiece balances out the long form for a more comfortable clench and accents the sleekness of the shank through its elegant curve.
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
