Vauen 3311 Danish Billiard Estate Briar Pipe, Unsmoked, 9mm [SOLD OUT]

Out of stock


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.

While Vauen’s shape numbering system doesn’t have a name for this 3311, I’ve decided to label it as a Danish billiard. It reminds me quite strongly of the designs seen by Danish makes such as Stanwell, along with artisans such as Former, Karl Erik, and Nanna Ivarsson. It’s a decidedly stout, chubby billiard; full in the hand like a brandy, but without the taper associated with that shape. This shape isn’t one I see much from Vauen these days either, so here’s your chance to pick up one of their more rare compositions.

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. 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.
