Featuring a mix of standard and more generously-sized briars, the Rossi Vittoria is a ruggedly rusticated series sure to please those with a taste for understated smokers with a touch of Italian charm. Wearing a stem of equally dark vulcanite, it's presented in a fine variety of straight and bent classic shapes. This broad-bowled, broad-chambered shape, the "8409" Dublin, is a more substantial, traditional number, and one that's been well and thoroughly treated to the Italian neoclassical school's penchant for full-bodied proportions.
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. :)
