Ropp: Etudiant Sandblasted (J05)
Product Number: 002-598-10617
An exceptionally trim, featherweight rendition of the bent Dublin, Ropp's "J05" is marked by slender proportions and svelte lines — fitting in well to the French marque's convention of offering more diminutive iterations of classic shapes. The bowl here is conservatively flared, though still tall enough to house a respectable chamber, and while the transition lends the bowl an upright stance, the elongated, slightly bent stem affords the profile a subtle, Prince-like elegance.
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
