French Estates: Ropp Algerian Superior Smooth Billiard (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-003-5001

Exuding a classic, timeless style, this saddle-stemmed Billiard from Ropp is a quintessential rendition of the shape chart standard. The shank-and-stem combination is slightly longer and more slender than other traditional iterations, accentuating the profile's sleekness. Such proportions make for a pipe that's trim and lightweight, defined by a streamlined nature and old-school appeal.

Like the Vintage line, Ropp's Algerian Superior series boasts stummels that were found at the Chapuis-Comoy factory. Turned decades ago but never finished, they showcase old-school shaping and a traditional, chestnut stain fitted to an ebonite stem for a classic appeal. Unlike Ropp's Vintage pipes, Algerian Superior pieces are presented only in a smooth finish, having been sourced from select-quality Algerian briar that's free of fills, similar to the Vintage Superior series, which pairs smooth-finished, fill-free stummels to horn stems.
