Ropp: Etudiant Smooth (J21) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-15522
Ropp's "J" shapes comprise the French marque's Etudiant line, and they're all marked by incredibly lightweight proportions and slender shaping, making them ideal travel pipes. The "J21" is streamlined Billiard rendition that features a Liverpool-like, elongated shank fitted to a tapered stem. Unlike the classic Liverpool, though, the stem is of more standard length, evoking the look of the iconic Bing's Billiard — named for the style of pipes often smoked by the legendary singer and actor.
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
