Vauen by Barontini 414 Partially 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.

Vauen is less commonly known for its collaborations with famous designers than other makers, such as Stanwell, but the company has nonetheless partnered with quite a few very interesting individuals and companies. These include Oliver Brandt, Radice, Mastro de Paja, and, in the case of this one, Caesare Barontini. This 414 is quite a curious shape, somewhere between an apple and a straight Rhodesian. It’s certainly the most ‘German’ design I’ve seen by an Italian (Barontini) in a long while. It’s great, though, with a full hand-feel, plenty of flame grain, and an elegant silver collar.

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.
