Rossi: Sera (8606) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-15780
While many designs on Rossi's shape chart cater more toward traditional English and French shaping cues when compared to the bold, bowl-centric proportions of other Italian makers, the "8606" bent Billiard leans more heavily into that Italian neoclassic style, aligning with Savinelli's "606 KS." The bowl is full and robust, dominating the visual weight to leave the shank and stem in more slender, supporting roles. Hearty of chamber, it poses a proud comforting disposition as one of Rossi's largest bent Billiard renditions, with only the "8616" presenting a more muscular profile through the shank. The "8606" offers a substantial feel in hand, and the lithe bend and angled shank make for an effortless clench when smoking hands free.
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
