Ropp: Vintage Smooth (275)
Product Number: 002-598-6981
Previously we've carried lots and lots of sandblasted Ropps of the Vintage line — old-stock French briars fitted with horn stems. They proved popular. Very popular. Inevitably, we sold them all. We knew it would happen. What we didn't know was that Antoine Grenard at Chapuis-Comoy had a separate building still brimming with old, never-sold pipes and stummels. Sykes didn't even find out about them until Antoine led him into the place during a recent visit. Upshot: more vintage French pipes for the Ropp Vintage line, with a bunch of added shapes, as well as smooth finishes. In this case, that means the "275," a very handy Billiard of pocket-pipe length, but still packing a good amount of bowl.
