Ropp: Vintage Stout Sandblasted Bulldog
Product Number: 002-598-7023
A taller rendition of Ropp's squat Bulldog, this Stout example maintains the former's compact, nosewarmer length and stocky proportions, making it perfect for travel or hands free smoking. Featuring the shape's defining diamond shank and conventional beadlines about the bowl, this is a classic take on the pipe chart standard's general form. It's a slight departure from Ropp's more svelte, streamlined pieces, though, trading sleekness for a more hearty sense of muscularity. As such, it provides a substantial in hand feel and houses a generous chamber that belies its pocket-friendly proportions.
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 earthy brown-stained sandblast 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
