French Estates: Ropp Algerian Superior Smooth Lovat

Product Number: 004-003-4661

If you're already familiar with the Ropp Vintage Superior line, the idea behind the Algerian Superior should be, well, equally so. These are pipes that come from a decades' old production run that had called for higher grade briar, from Algeria specifically, that was free of fills. They were found by Antoine Grenard and crew at Chapuis-Comoy after having waited in storage, turned and fitted with vulcanite stems but unfinished, for 60-plus years. Here, that flawless briar was rendered in a classic Lovat shape, exuding elegance and poise through its elongated stem.
