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.

I’ve labeled this pipe as a ‘vase’ shape, but truthfully I’m not quite sure what to call it. Not that that’s a bad thing, but what would the name for this be? A ‘hyperbolic billiard’? Maybe ‘ergonomic billiard’ – after all, the shape of the bowl is curved to fit perfectly in the hand as one smokes, in addition to being an otherwise classical and uncomplicated design. The grain isn’t bad either, with plenty of bird’s-eye patterns around the bowl, and flame grain crossing the rim.

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.
