Ropp: Geant Matte Oom Paul Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-7998
This Oom Paul from Ropp is a house pipe meant for comfortable, long-lasting smoking sessions. Though it's marked by a deep-chambered, cylindrical bowl and hearty proportions, the shape's full bend balances out the muscularity. That said, while the sinuous S-curve does make clenching easier, the French marque considered its weighty form, having flattened the heel to ensure it also sits upright when needed.
Meaning "giant" in French, Ropp's Géant series is devoted to massive briars, prioritizing chamber depth and palm-filling substance. Such a style is a stark departure from the French marque's typically more diminutive and streamlined proportions — the Géant line instead catering to those who prefer more robust shaping and lengthy smoking sessions. Ropp maintains their traditional shaping and finishing style, though, with this particular piece dressed in a smooth, semi-virgin finish that will darken over time as this piece is smoked.-Truett Smith
