French Estates: Ropp Etudiant Sandblasted (J18)
Product Number: 004-003-7227
Conveniently compact yet not lacking in chamber depth, Ropp's "J18" bent Billiard is a pipe designed for portability and comfort — slipping easily into a jacket pocket and clenched effortlessly. Shape-wise, it fits into Ropp's classic, old-school style, the profile marked by supple curves and svelte proportions. While the bowl is upright and the transition tightly angled, the shape remains incredibly smooth and gentle, making for an elegant design that's at once striking and traditionally conservative.
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 pipe smokers 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.-Truett Smith
