Ropp: Heritage Sandblasted (354) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-14373
Ropp is a historic French marque known for classic shaping, refined finishes, and vintage style, and their "354" bent Dublin Sitter shape exemplifies those aspects but with increased overall size compared to Ropp's standard fare. The tall, subtly flaring bowl houses a deep chamber within thick, insulating walls, and a flattened heel allows it to sit sturdily upright, making it an ideal desktop companion. A tall transition, angled shank, and bent saddle stem balance out the bowl's substance for comfortable jaw-hanging.
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
