Rossi: Rubino Antico (8320) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-16342
The "8320," Rossi's rendition of Savinelli's signature "320 KS," is a thoroughly Italian take on the classic Author shape, pairing a plump, well-rounded bowl to an equally robust shank-and-stem combination. It's a properly full-bodied rendition, featuring soft, supple curves throughout its hearty proportions and bold, masculine lines. The "8320" is, in essence, a more substantial, muscular take on the Italian marque's other Author design, the "8321." Reassuringly stout in hand, and housing an impressively broad chamber, it's the perfect pipe to sit back and relax with — the epitome of a comfort pipe and considered a defining, signature shape among Rossi's portfolio.
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
