Ropp: Etudiant Smooth (J20) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-14575
Ropp's "J20" and "J24" shapes represent the Etudiant line's Bulldog renditions. Both versions maintain the French marque's penchant for svelte interpretations of shape-chart standards, featuring the Bulldog's characteristic diamond shank and iconically stout and ridgelined bowl. The two designs differ, though, in their degree of bend: The "J20" — offered here — presents a streamlined, straight posture, while the "J24" exhibits an angled shank and demurely bent stem.
In the Etudiant line, Ropp presents pipes that are fashioned from old-stock stummels sourced from the Chapuis-Comoy factory — like the French marque's Vintage, Vintage Stout, Vintage Superior, and Algerian Superior series. Etudiant pipes are designed to be lightweight, workhorse smokers, perfect for beginning and veteran pipe smokers alike, and offered at an attractive, budget-friendly price point. Paired to a jet-black, vulcanite stem, this particular one wears a smooth auburn stain, fitting into Ropp's penchant for classic shapes and finishes.-Truett Smith
