Ropp: Special Sandblasted Poker
Product Number: 002-598-7469
While the Poker has been a mainstay of the Ropp catalog longer than even the most stubborn of us have been alive, this piece reflects a new aesthetic for the shape in its tall, slender, flaring bowl and lithe, elongated shank and stem combination. The piece is extraordinarily light in hand, as might be expected of such a willowy design, and despite the elongated saddle mouthpiece, the pipe sits sturdily when placed on a flat surface. The simplicity of the bowl dimensions almost provide a cylindrical visual effect, but it expands to the flat rim gradually in Dublin-like fashion. There a bit more substance to the heel under the transition, which permits a larger and sturdier base, though the weight is still insubstantial, and it's all dressed here in a classic, chocolate-stained sandblast as part of the Special series.- Chuck Stanion
