Rossi: Sera (8677) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-15299
A bent Billiard with a supple, Brandy-like taper toward the rim, Rossi's "8677" is a compact yet full-bodied take on the classic English shape, corresponding to the "677 KS" on Savinelli's shape chart. Per the Italian marque's shaping conventions, Rossi has elaborated on the standard bent Billiard design, adding mass to the base and transition with extra height and taper lent to the bowl, all paired to one of their signature triangular shanks. With plenty of chamber but in a convenient overall size, this "8677" maintains a traditional profile imbued with just enough accenting touches to make it the distinctive work of Rossi.
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
