Ropp: Algerian Superior Smooth Paneled Billiard
Product Number: 002-598-6251
The classic Foursquare shape is a staple within traditional English and French pipe charts. Ropp softens the typically hard-lined in this Billiard rendition, pairing a paneled bowl on the end of a rounded shank. Fitting with the shank, the bowl's edges are more curved and gentle, conforming well to wrapped fingers while still offering a hint of firm presence.
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
