Rossi: Notte (8101) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-16129
Rossi's "8101" Billiard is a muscular take on the shape chart standard — undeniably Italian in its execution, evidenced by the robust bowl and firm heel underneath. Taken from Savinelli's "101" design, such shaping cues call to mind the Savinelli's "141 KS" Billiard, only here, the bowl of the "8101" has a much stouter appearance due to the shank being considerably thicker, continuing the hearty precedent set by the bowl. This piece is also one of the shortest Billiards offered by Rossi, making it a substantial pipe that houses a good bit of chamber, while still being easily manageable and relatively compact.
Introduced to Rossi's portfolio in 2019, the Notte series presents an alluring palette of dark, stormy hues. Meaning "night" in Italian, the Notte offers an aptly dark aesthetic, pairing a smoky, smooth stain with a jet-black acrylic mouthpiece — a trim brass accent ring adding just a touch of brightness, like a sliver of moon at midnight. The stain, while dark, still reveals the briar's natural grain on this piece, emulating the look of swirling clouds within a night's black sky for a powerful and mysterious disposition.-Truett Smith
