French Estates: Ropp Algerian Superior Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-003-7592
Exuding a classic, timeless style, this 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 and lending the upright bowl and perched disposition. 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.-Truett Smith
