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.

If there is a ‘German style’ to pipe design, then its one defining property might be the ‘broad’ or ‘chubby’ aesthetic displayed by so many of the country’s creations. This is, no doubt, partly because Germany is a nation of 9mm filter smokers, meaning their pipes have to be wider in the shank to accommodate 9mm tenons, and the rest of the pipe is often widened so as to complement this thickness. But rather than being a design obstacle, the Germans have embraced this and produced larger, more muscular variations on shapes typically associated with the UK or Denmark, and have thus made the shapes their own. This one, for example, is a bent apple, but it is more full and far less dainty than an English or French one. It feels full in the hand like a brandy glass, while looking nonetheless elegant in its dress aesthetic.

This Vauen is also 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.
