Vauen 3315 Danish Apple Estate Briar Pipe, Unsmoked, 9mm

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.

Though it has a Germanic chubbiness, it would be difficult not to look at this shape 3315 and think it was somewhat ‘Danish.’ In fact, I would say it was very Danish. I’m not sure when the shape was designed, but I see many similarities between this pipe and Stanwell’s ‘Island’ series pipes, which were, like this one, round, organic little pipes. I can also see a lot of parallels between this pipe and some of Nanna Ivarsson’s pieces. Anyway, it’s a gorgeous pipe on its own merits, being a plump, Danish apple shape with plenty of pleasant flame grain and a silver mount.

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 wood filters. Adapters can be purchased, however, which would allow the pipe to be smoked just as well without one.
