Ropp: Heritage Sandblasted (350) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-13528
Ropp's "350" is an impressively sized paneled Billiard with a towering bowl, flattened underside, and a structural aesthetic. A classic Foursquare, it pairs a four-sided shank with crisp line work that extends through the saddle stem, as well as a paneled bowl with the corners of the bowl cut to smaller panels. The facets on its flanks are defined by ridgelines that curve together to form an arc near the heel, softening the profile a touch and marking it with a nuance of French artistry — a practical desk pipe of generous size.
Like all of Ropp's series, the Heritage features old-stock stummels sourced from the Chapuis-Comoy factory — all turned decades ago but left unfinished and without stems. The Heritage line dresses these stummels in a rich, chocolate-and-charcoal stain, revealing the briar's natural grain patterns in alluring contrast to offer visual intrigue while maintaining the French marque's traditional aesthetic. They're also fitted to vulcanite stems — unlike the horn mouthpieces of the Vintage, Vintage Stout, Vintage Superior, and Ruby lines — for a classic motif similar to the Étudiant and Algerian Superior series but with considerably increased overall dimensions.-Truett Smith
