French Estates: Ropp Vintage Smooth (439C)

Product Number: 004-003-4734

A slightly unusual shape, Ropp's "439C" wears the taper and soft heel of an Acorn, though with a strong forward cant that presents its shank and stem at a steep angle. While it's quite a unique design, it remains remarkably comfortable in hand. and it's also light enough to be clenched easily.

Sourced from old stummels found at the Chapuis-Comoy factory, Ropp's Vintage line presents old-school, classic designs that were turned decades ago but never finished. This piece is dressed in a light chestnut stain and fitted with a stem of genuine horn, hearkening back to the style of mouthpieces from the early 1900s. It accentuates the vintage motif, making for a thoroughly retro aesthetic.
