Ropp: Algerian Superior Acorn
Product Number: 002-598-12117
Ambitiously slender and elongated, this Ropp Acorn offers a Stack-like depth of chamber and an Egg-like bowl shape that joins the shank in a low transition that maintains the heels curvature. The shank is short, while the stem is long and lithe, in a saddle configuration for comfort, weight, and to propel the eye forward to the bowl. Very easy in hand, insignificant in weight, and remarkably diverting in its supple shaping, this design foretells many years of contented cohabitation and excellent smoking characteristics.
Like the Vintage line, Ropp's Algerian Superior series boasts stummels that were found at the Chapuis-Comoy factory. Turned decades ago but never finished, they showcase old-school shaping and a traditional, chestnut stain fitted to an ebonite stem for a classic appeal. Unlike Ropp's Vintage pipes, Algerian Superior pieces are presented only in a smooth finish, having been sourced from select-quality Algerian briar that's free of fills, similar to the Vintage Superior series, which pairs smooth-finished, fill-free stummels to horn stems.- Chuck Stanion
