Ropp: Vintage Smooth (338)
Product Number: 002-598-3593
Ropp's "338" design is a squat, plump form that tows the line between Apple, Acorn, and Tomato. The slightly raised waistline and subtle forward cant combine for a comfortable in hand feel, while the diminutive proportions and streamlined profile create a lightweight presence that's easily clenched. It's a shape that fits in well to Ropp's historic roots, hearkening back to old-school French and English shaping.
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 smooth, auburn 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
