Vauen stems from Germany’s oldest tobacco pipe manufacturing company, tracing its roots back to the founding partnership of Karl Ellenberger and Carl August Ziener in Nuremberg, 1848. Out of the Ellenberger-Ziener partnership soon came the Vauen make itself, which grew to become Germany’s largest and most enduring pipe brand – a title that it continues to hold to this day.    

This Vauen is an interesting shape. I’ve categorized it as a pear, is it sort of looked like a very chubby (read: German) take on the classic shape, but I suppose it could also be considered a bent apple, or a bent ball. Even more interesting is the original, P-lip style stem this Vauen has, though if you’re familiar with the history of Vauen pipes, as well as other makes in the 20th century (Hilson, Savinelli, etc.), you’ll know that Peterson’s P-lip was emulated by a good number of other pipe companies. Not that this is a bad thing – they certainly help with tongue bite, to my mind.

This Vauen is completely unsmoked, with a factory-original bowl coating to help ease in its first smokes. It also comes with its original box and sleeve. There are one or two worn out fills in the finish, but these imperfections are purely cosmetic. The grain is otherwise very nice.

As with most Vauen pipes, it is chambered for 9mm filters, such as Vauen’s own or Savinelli’s balsa filters. It should also accommodate some variety of adapter for non-filter use, if the user prefers.
