Rossi: Sera (8616) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-16212
One of the most full-bodied examples of Rossi's approach to the bent Billiard, the "8616" dramatizes the standard form with especially robust proportions. It features a hearty bowl and generous chamber with an equally plump shank-and-stem combination. It's noticeably more muscular and deep-chambered compared to the marque's other bent Billiards like the "8606," "8670," and "8602" designs. The "8616" offers plenty of reinforcing briar at its chamber walls, transition, and shank, filling the palm with ease and exemplifying what it means to be considered an iconic Italian bent Billiard.
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
