Ropp: Vintage Superior Smooth (275P) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-14624
The "275" design is one of Ropp's classic Billiard renditions, offering sleek proportions and an overall classic demeanor. The "275P" version maintains those characteristics but features a paneled bowl and more elongated stem. Such variations add a sense of architectural structure in hand while also accentuating the stummel's already svelte lines, aptly fulfilling the storied French marque's reputation for streamlined, elegant, and lightweight interpretations of shape-chart classic.
Sourced from old stummels found at the Chapuis-Comoy factory, Ropp's Vintage line presents old-school, classic designs that were turned decades ago but never finished. This Superior piece is commended further, having been fashioned from select-quality, fill-free briar and is here dressed in a smooth, auburn stain. It's fitted with a stem of genuine horn, hearkening back to the style of mouthpieces from the early 1900s and accentuating the vintage motif to make for a thoroughly retro aesthetic.-Truett Smith
