Vauen McRooty 415 Rusticated 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.

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. I would call the shape of this one a ‘Danish pot’; it reminds me a little of Stanwell and their collaborations with Sixten Ivarsson, and his granddaughter, Nanna Ivarsson. It’s short, a little chubby, but well proportioned. It’s also very portable and pocket-friendly. The partial rustication gives it a good grip, while the rim and silver trim add a touch of extra class. We’ve sold a few Vauens recently, and I have to admit, I realize now how much I slept on this make.

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.
