Rossi: Rubino Antico (8614) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-15958
Rossi's "8614" is the Italian marque's most deeply bent shape, resembling the classic Oom Paul and corresponding to Savinelli's "614" design. The shank curls upward, almost vertically, making for a compact length that hangs comfortably from the jaw, and the stretched heel and rounded Billiard bowl sit naturally in hand. Aligning more with traditional English proportions, the shank and transition are on the stouter end compared to some of Rossi's Italian neoclassic shapes — an excellent choice for those interested in an Italian-made, hands-free smoker but desire a form of more English sensibilities.
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
