Ropp: Algerian Superior Bent Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-16211
Exuding the svelte lines and demure nature that characterize many of Ropp's designs, this bent Billiard is well balanced, featherweight option for those interested in a easily clenched, traditionally shaped pipe. The slender bowl matches the shank's trim dimensions — the streamlined motif furthered by the sleek diminution of the saddle stem — and the mouthpiece's bend both balances the bowl's forward can in profile and makes for a comfortable smoking posture.
Like the Vintage line, Ropp's Algerian Superior series boasts stummels that were found at the Chapuis-Comoy factory. Turned decades ago but never finished, they showcase old-school shaping and a traditional, chestnut stain fitted to an ebonite stem for a classic appeal. Unlike Ropp's Vintage pipes, Algerian Superior pieces are presented only in a smooth finish, having been sourced from select-quality Algerian briar that's free of fills, similar to the Vintage Superior series, which pairs smooth-finished, fill-free stummels to horn stems.-Truett Smith
