The 8320 Author shape, one of the best-selling designs in the Rossi lineup, has been scaled up here to massive EX proportions. The result is the same plump curves and chubby form loved by many, only now with more chamber breadth and depth alike. Like all pipes in this line, it's finished in an extra dark, rugged rustication and accented by a thin ring of bright nickel, keeping the focus on the shapes themselves.
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. :)
