Ropp: Geant Sandblasted Bent Brandy
Product Number: 002-598-8406
Voluptuous and substantial in hand, this bent Brandy from Ropp provides a palm-filling presence and houses a generously deep tobacco chamber within its affably rounded bowl. Said bowl features some additional plumpness around its base and gradually tapers to its subtly chamfered rim which then slopes inward to the chamber. The slight cheeking at the transition serves to maintain the bowl's curvaceousness while the stem's elegant downturn provides the necessary balance for this piece to be enjoyed hands-free.
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 classic, dark brown sandblast.- Jeffery Sitts
