Ropp: Algerian Superior Smooth Billiard
Product Number: 002-598-3400
With Antoine Grenard turning up the 1970s vintage stummels that became the Vintage Superior series, we had our first chance to offer a higher grade Ropp; those pipes were all originally turned for a production run that called for special briar and results that were free of fills. With the Algerian Superior, we have our second chance. These pipes were turned even farther back, some time during or previous to the mid-1950s, but again as part of a production run that required select grade briar — specifically select grade Algerian briar.
