Ropp: Gargantua Sandblasted Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-598-16984
A timeless rendition of the iconic Billiard shape, this piece exemplifies Ropp's commitment to classic French style, placing a pert, gently rounded bowl atop a soft heel at the fore of a smooth transition to a balanced round shank. Out back, said shank joins the distinctively lengthy and robust tapered vulcanite stem of the Gargantua series.
Ropp's Gargantua series, like the rest of Ropp's portfolio, is sourced from old stock stummels in the Chapuis-Comoy factory. What sets this series apart from the rest of Ropp's offerings, aside from its focus on massive pipes, is that the robust vulcanite stems are also sourced from original stock. As the name implies, the Gargantua line presents Ropp's largest series of pipes to date, offered across a variety of shapes in both smooth and sandblasted finishes, with the latter seen here.-Gabriel Bass
