Rossi: Sera (8122) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-577-16492
Rossi's "8122" bent Pot corresponds to Savinelli's "122" shape and combines muscularity and elegance for a striking design — the broad, robust bowl being paired to a lithe, bent shank-and-stem combination. In keeping with the marque's signature Italian neoclassic approach to shaping, Rossi has rendered the heel with firm, jutting disposition, while softening the shape's profile through the use of a gently downturned stem. Such a design cue gives the form a look that calls to mind the classic Prince shape in profile. The "8122" is nearly identical to the marque's "8121" bent Pot, but the primary difference between the two is that the "8122" here features a bowl with a more modest width, offering the shape's characteristically broad chamber but with a more compact presence.
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
