French Estates: Ropp Etudiant Sandblasted (J15)
Product Number: 004-003-23043
Incorporating the sure-sitting, cylindrical bowl of the Poker with the gracefully arching stem of a Prince, Ropp's "J15" is a charmingly versatile design. It sits upon flat surfaces, resting gently back on the stem's button and is light enough to be comfortably clenched, while housing a respectably deep chamber inside.
In the Etudiant line, Ropp presents pipes that are fashioned from old-stock stummels sourced from the Chapuis-Comoy factory — like the French marque's Vintage, Vintage Stout, Vintage Superior, and Algerian Superior series. Etudiant pipes are designed to be lightweight, workhorse smokers, perfect for beginning and veteran pipesmokers alike, and offered at an attractive, budget-friendly price point. Paired to a jet-black, vulcanite stem, this particular one wears a chocolate-stained sandblast, fitting into Ropp's penchant for classic shapes and finishes.- Jeffery Sitts
