Ropp: Vintage Smooth (740)
Product Number: 002-598-1227
Ropp showcases several paneled shapes within their portfolio, often pairing sleek, aerodynamic shank and stems with more petite bowls that combine bulbous curves with crisp facets. The "740," found here, is one such piece — offering the plump in hand feel of an Apple or Prince with the added textural appeal of a paneled shape. It's comprised of six facets across the bowl's sides, poising ridgelines fore and aft for a streamlined disposition that's juxtaposed against the profile's rounded nature. Overall, it's a lightweight briar that's easily clenched and conveniently pocketed.
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.-Truett Smith
