Polished smooth, finished in a dusky gray, and fitted with sleek black acrylic stems that won't oxidize, Rossi's Notte line presents a charming, tasteful style in which to offer great Italian designs at an easy price. Though of a leaner style than many of Rossi's shapes, the 8701 saddle-stemmed Lovat still features a surprising amount of chamber and some bold Italian proportions overall.
Pipe Nook Notes
This is an unfiltered pipe. If you are looking for a first pipe or are fairly new to pipe smoking, I strongly recommend trying a 6mm or 9mm filtered pipe. If you're one of the many who battle the dreaded tongue-bite, filtered pipes help to alleviate this problem. You can always try smoking your filtered pipes without a filter in place, to see if unfiltered smoking irritates your tongue, and can purchase non-filtered pipes from there. If you already know that tongue-bite is not an issue for you, then never mind. :)
