Ropp: Algerian Superior Smooth Bent Dublin
Product Number: 002-598-6256
Known for their classic style, traditional finishes, and sleek sense of proportions, Ropp here presents a bent Dublin that boasts all of those qualities. The shank and stem combination are made extra-slender by the saddle mouthpiece, and the angled transition pitches the bowl slightly forward. In relation to the shank, the bowl appears dramatically tall, marked by a conservative flare, yet possesses a versatile chamber of about Group 4 size. Such a size makes for a conveniently lightweight piece, fitting easily into a pocket and comfortably clenched thanks to the slight bend.
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
