French Estates: Ropp Vintage Smooth (275)
Product Number: 004-003-4131
We know the day will eventually come when we run out of old French pipes for the Ropp brand. Short of time-travel there really isn't a way to make more pipes that were made decades ago, after all. Fortunately, while the supply must be finite, it must not necessarily be as finite as we expect. Sykes, for example, did not expect Antoine Grenard to go leading him into an entire building he hadn't even seen on his previous visits, again to find who-knows-how-many old French pipes and stummels.
Antoine did that anyway. Result: several hundred more Ropps, now including smooth-finishes for the horn-stemmed Vintage series, as well as a bunch of shapes we hadn't previously received, like this handy little "275" straight Billiard.
