Ropp: Geant Sandblasted Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-13507
This Ropp Billiard is a massive, hearty take on the timeless shape chart standard, fitting in well with the French marque's appreciation for traditional forms but here rendered on a significantly larger scale. That said, the proportions are consistent and balanced throughout despite the piece's large overall size, with the stem displaying a graceful taper to the button. The towering bowl houses an incredibly deep tobacco chamber within and will undoubtedly provide lengthy smoking sessions.
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
