Ropp: Algerian Superior Tomato
Product Number: 002-598-7602
Resembling a straight Prince, but with a more squat bowl, this Tomato from Ropp fits in well to the French marque's signature style of streamlined, slender, and lightweight pipe designs. The elongated, tapered stem adds further sleekness to the profile, leading the eye to the bowl's plump curves. For those looking for a portable, quick smoke, Ropp pipes deliver — personified particularly by this diminutive Tomato.
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
