Ropp: Vintage Smooth (364)
Product Number: 002-598-8216
The classic Rhodesian shape offers a softer-lined aesthetic for those who prefer a more gentle shape compared to the rigid disposition of the Bulldog. In this "364" from Ropp, that genteel aesthetic is furthered by a simple ridgeline demarcating the taper toward the rim, forgoing the shape's typical beadlines. Paired to a slightly elongated, streamlined shank-and-stem combination, it presents a sleek silhouette, exemplifying Ropp's penchant for lightweight renditions of pipe chart standards.
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 smooth, auburn stain 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
