    I could not resist grabbing a Ropp pipe with the horn stem this afternoon. The only thing is,, in my haste to secure it, I forgot to save the picture on my desktop, so I asked smokingpipes.com to send me a couple so I can show them to you.

    So, pics to follow, gentlemen.

    Yes indeed -- sharp and unusual enough to turn heads

    Congratulations!

    Oh BTW, FYI, you can access listings for old SPC listings of sold pipes. I just type in the pipe name, model, etc. in a Google search. In this case, a search for "Ropp Horn Smooth Brown Bent Billiard" gets this at the top of the search results:

    junkyarddawg: congratulations. I saw those pipes and drooled. Please let us know how they smoke. I'm especially interested in how the bone stem turns out.

    And, I noticed in reading about them that bone pipe stems were once not unusual but the norm. Anyone know about them, I'd love to learn some more.

    Anyway, junkyard, a beauty of a pipe.

    I'm not an expert on horn stems, but I do know that in France, at least, they were fitted on briars and meerschaums before and after the invention of vulcanite. I'm not sure when vulcanite was introduced on the pipe market, but Dunhill has been using it for his stems in the early years of his business.

    This pipe deserves a bump. That grain and stem are fit for the Duke of Earl.

    Let me know how it smokes, and if you would recommend a Ropp.

    I think the horn stems are prone to picking up tooth impressions very easily; and they tend to get chewed up pretty badly by clenchers.
    This might be a candidate for a softy bit protector. At any rate, gorgeous pipe and stem combo. Kind of a throwback.
