Ropp: Etudiant Smooth (J19) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-15128
Rendered in compact, pocket-friendly proportions, Ropp's "J19" Cherrywood is quite a versatile design, combining elements of both the Poker and bent Billiard shapes. Its flattened base enables it to sit unassisted while its light weight and sinuously bent shank-and-stem combination promote a comfortable, hands-free smoking posture. It's a convenient piece no matter how it's enjoyed and exemplifies Ropp's diverse shaping style, resulting in a composition that's easily portable and well-suited for desk pipe duties.
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
