Ropp: Etudiant Sandblasted (J14)
Product Number: 002-598-8305
Similar to Ropp's "J18," the "J14" found here is a diminutive bent Billiard, catering well to the French marque's penchant for smaller, traditionally inclined shape chart standards. This particular bent Billiard rendition differs from the "J18" in its untapered, upright bowl and saddle stem — both design elements combining for a more firm, rigid aesthetic, while still being offering in a compact pocket pipe meant for easy clenching and on-the-go smoking.
In the Etudiant line, Ropp presents pipes that are fashioned from old-stock stummels sourced from the Chapuis-Comoy factory — like the French marque's Vintage, Vintage Stout, Vintage Superior, and Algerian Superior series. Etudiant pipes are designed to be lightweight, workhorse smokers, perfect for beginning and veteran pipe smokers alike, and offered at an attractive, budget-friendly price point. Paired to a jet-black, vulcanite stem, this particular one wears a chocolate-stained sandblast, fitting into Ropp's penchant for classic shapes and finishes.-Truett Smith
