Ropp: Vintage Superior Bulldog
Product Number: 002-598-6527
The Bulldog is one of the most sturdy, firm-lined shapes within the classic pipe chart, imbued with a strong, masculine appeal thanks to its rigid diamond shank and the clean angles of the beadlined bowl. This Ropp is a textbook rendition of that style, seemingly plucked straight from an early 20th century French catalog. While other iterations of the shape may accentuate the masculine persona with robust proportions and large size, in this piece, Ropp maintains a svelte aesthetic for a lightweight pipe of sleek Anglo-French style.
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 Superior piece is commended further, having been fashioned from select-quality, fill-free briar and is here dressed in a smooth, auburn stain. It's fitted with a stem of genuine horn, hearkening back to the style of mouthpieces from the early 1900s and accentuating the vintage motif to make for a thoroughly retro aesthetic.-Truett Smith
