Ropp: Algerian Superior Paneled Pot Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-12174
Many of Ropp's designs hew toward trim, svelte dimensions and streamlined shaping. This paneled Pot, however, eschews those conventions for a much more robust and muscular profile. Such hearty shaping combines well with the panels that comprise the bowl, offering firm structure in hand alongside the Pot's characteristically stout demeanor. Though rounded and not faceted, the shank continues the muscular shaping before the lines taper through the stem. It's a distinctive take on the classic design — perfect for those who appreciate Ropp's overall style but favor more substantial pipes.
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.-Truett Smith
