Vauen 412 McRooty Rusticated Straight Apple 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.

As evinced by the white dot, or weißer Punkt, on its stem (not to be confused with Dunhill’s White Spot), the McRooty is one of Vauen’s higher end lines, most of which are normally only sold in Europe. The shape is eminently German; a stout, chubby apple of nosewarmer length, with thick bowl walls and two collars of silver and blue acrylic. While the pipe is mostly rusticated, the rim and the top of the bowl walls have been left smooth, adding an extra touch of class to the overall design.

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.
