Vauen Kingwood 61 Smooth Bent 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.

The Kingwood is not a line produced by Vauen anymore, as far as I was able to discern. But, as it has Vauen’s weißer Punkt (‘white dot’), which marks Vauen’s higher end pipes, it is safe to say that this was once a rather pricey model. This is also evident from the grain and stain, which mixes a nice share of bird’s-eye with a slightly contrasted finish, as well as the shank ring, which appears to be some kind of African hardwood.

Despite being out of production for quite a while, 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. The pipe, like most Vauens, is chambered for 9mm filters, but adapters can be purchased that will allow it to be smoked without one.
