Rossi: Mezzanotte (8806) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-15328
Rossi's "8806" is a traditional take on the classic Lumberman, similar to the Italian marque's "8803" and corresponding to Savinelli's "806" shape, but the "8806" features significantly smaller proportions throughout compared to the "8803" rendition. The Billiard bowl is classically shaped and transitions to a slightly elongated, oval shank and an abbreviated saddle stem, both elements accentuating the bowl's visual prominence in profile. The "8806" is an ideal choice for those drawn to the traditional Lumberman but prefer a more conveniently-sized and versatile rendition.
Introduced in 2023, Rossi's Mezzanotte line is a no-nonsense series that prioritizes timeless traditionalism and a conservative presentation that draws focus to this pipe's line and form. Marked by a dark stain and rugged rustication, the Mezzanotte series appropriately translates to "Midnight" in Italian and offers just the right amount of texture in hand. It remains balanced between traditional Italian and English pipe making styles — the rustication calling to mind the dramatic, extra-craggy finishes often seen throughout Italian pipe making, but the lighter depth hewing closer to the stately English aesthetic — with the dark palette and grooved surface hiding any handling marks this piece might pick up over the years.-Truett Smith
