Rossi: Rubino Antico (8111) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-15518
A classically inclined, deep-chambered rendition of the timeless Billiard, Rossi's "8111" is a bold take on the shape chart standard and is proudly Italian in its execution, aligning with the "111 KS" from Savinelli. The towering bowl commands much of the shape's visual weight, paired to a comparatively slimmer, round shank and tapered mouthpiece. The "8111" is closely related to the marque's "8104" Billiard, with the primary difference being that this "8111" is slightly longer and contains more muscular proportions throughout. Such features are ideal for fans of traditional pipe designs who also prefer an arrangement that offers more chamber depth for longer smokes and a substantial presence in hand.
As pipe makers develop and grow over decades, it's natural to innovate and improve finishes within a marque's portfolio, maintaining the same beloved aesthetic while bettering the processes and overall results. The Rubino Antico series is Rossi's upgraded Rubino line, offering the same ruby-and-chrome color palette but with notable improvements. The smooth, hand-brushed finish offers a glossy sheen and, while boldly saturated, handsomely reveals the briar's natural grain underneath, presenting a timeless palette that calls to mind smooth finishes of pipe making's early years.-Truett Smith
