Ropp: Geant Sandblasted Bent Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-11891
The majority of the pipes in Ropp's portfolio represent slender, more petite renditions of shape-chart standards, but this bent Billiard marks one of the French marque's largest offerings. With roughly two inches of chamber depth, it's a hearty version primed for long smoking sessions. The proportions follow this increased size, remaining balanced between the bowl and shank for a pipe that maintains a classic style despite being of larger overall dimensions. It's the perfect pipe for those that appreciate Ropp's devotion to traditional designs but desire more chamber depth and hearty muscularity.
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.-Truett Smith
