Ropp: Etudiant Smooth (J16) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-15941
Ropp's classic style is often manifested in a streamlined, slender approach to shaping, usually resulting in shape chart standards rendered in slightly more svelte proportions. The Prince shape, though, naturally fits into that aesthetic, the design already being inherently elegant. The "J16" is an archetypal rendition of the traditional form, marked by a bulbous, squat Apple bowl lent more prominence by the sleek shank and elongated, slightly 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
