I am not positive about this, but I think the Vittoria line is all KS.
SP sez:

"Dark and rugged, the Vittoria line, like the Lucca, offers Rossi pipes in a simple style and at a low price. The big difference between the two series is size: Luccas are all "EX," the largest, while the Vittoria offers a mix of standard and "KS" shapes; this "8804" Canadian is a KS, which is pretty big, but not outright huge like the "EX" version of this same shape."
This is a nice thing to store away. I do know that the Vittoria 320 (author) and 122 (slightly bent pot) are KS. Those are the ones I have.

And I have the 8315 prince and the 8804 canadian. The prince is standard sized to my eye, and we already know that the 8804 is KS. These really are quality pipes.

In terms of quality for your smoking dollar, I do think the Vittoria line is a really solid purchase. Mine are great smokers. They were cheaper when I bought them than they are now, and I still think they are a great deal.

The slightly bent pot is fairly light weight as well (under 40 g). I can't convert the weight to dolphin squeaks for you, but 40 g is on the lighter end of the range for a pipe with a bowl this size.

Bengal Slices. A first for me, and I'm really enjoying it.

Great stuff. It's currently my favorite blend, supplanting FMC for the time being.

My dolphin squeak conversion kicks in automatically when any metric system measurement is employed. I'm going to look at the Vittorias again. Mine were around $38 when I bought them. They won't get any cheaper unless there is a sale!
