Ropp: Algerian Superior Paneled Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-16289
Ropp features a number of paneled designs across their portfolio, and most all balance crisp rigidity with svelte proportions and a sleek profile. This Billiard fits in well to that style — the bowl comprised of six geometric facets, with the slender shank and slightly elongated stem combining for an elegant, streamlined disposition. Lightweight and convenient, this is a piece for those drawn to classic French pipes with a touch of individuality.
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
