Ropp: Etudiant Sandblasted (J07)
Product Number: 002-598-8481
The proportions of Ropp's "J07" Billiard stay true to the classic English and French shape chart standard, the relationship between bowl and shank well-balanced and traditionally inclined — making this a timeless, archetypal rendition. Where the "J07" differs, though, is in its overall size: Of abbreviated length and featherweight dimensions, this Billiard is ideal for on-the-go travel, easily slipping into a pocket or being comfortably clenched.
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
