Rossi: Piccolo (8202) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-15290
Rossi's "8202" Apple is a streamlined, svelte, and classically inclined design, featuring a bulb of a bowl paired to an arrow straight shank-and-stem configuration. Like Savinelli's "202," it's one of only a few straight Apple shapes offered by the Italian firm, the other primarily being their "8207." The two versions differ most notably in regards to their proportions. The "8202" is slightly longer, displaying a smaller bowl while the "8207" tends to be a touch shorter in length and features a more robust presence.
The Italian tradition of pipe making has never lacked in regards to substantial pipes, and the shape charts of Rossi and Savinelli are considerably saturated with KS- and EX-sized briars that don't disappoint when it comes to palm-filling presence. However, not everyone desires hearty, larger forms, so Rossi presents the Piccolo line — a series devoted to petite Savinelli shapes now offered by Rossi. Dressed in the same rugged rustication as the Vittoria finish, the Piccolo series rounds out Rossi's portfolio, ensuring that Rossi pipes cater to all preferences.-Truett Smith
