Ropp: Etudiant Smooth (J22) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-11990
Sleek and streamlined, Ropp's "J22" Apple design fits well into the French marque's penchant for lightweight renditions of classic, shape-chart standards. An elongated, tapered stem accentuates the form's slender nature, leading into a trim shank and traditionally rounded bowl, and such shaping calls to mind the classic Prince shape, though the bowl here is a touch taller and less squat than would be considered standard for that design. It's a highly portable, effortlessly clenched design, perfect for quick, on-the-go smoking.
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 smooth auburn stain, fitting into Ropp's penchant for classic shapes and finishes.-Truett Smith
