Ropp: Algerian Superior Bent Stack
Product Number: 002-598-7486
Per Ropp's typical shaping style, this bent Stack displays a slender disposition through its shank and stem that's continued in the tall bowl's narrow height. Such an aesthetic both streamlines the svelte form while also ensuring a lightweight presence in hand and when clenched. With a slight bend to the elongated, tapered stem, the profile calls to mind the elegance of the Prince, while the bowl's subtle cant balances it all out in silhouette.
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
