Ropp: Vintage Sandblasted (321) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-11936
A taller rendition of Ropp's squat Bulldog, this "321" example maintains the compact, Nosewarmer length and stocky proportions of Ropp's Vintage Stout series, making it perfect for travel or hands-free smoking. Featuring the shape's defining diamond shank and conventional beadlines about the bowl, this is a classic take on the pipe-chart standard's general form. It's a slight departure from Ropp's more svelte, streamlined pieces, though, trading sleekness for a more hearty sense of muscularity. As such, it provides a substantial in-hand feel and houses a generous chamber that belies its pocket-friendly proportions.
Sourced from old stummels found at the Chapuis-Comoy factory, Ropp's Vintage line presents old-school, classic designs that were turned decades ago but never finished. This piece is dressed in a dark-stained sandblast and fitted with a stem of genuine horn, hearkening back to the style of mouthpieces from the early 1900s. It accentuates the vintage motif, making for a thoroughly retro aesthetic.-Truett Smith
