Vauen Select 302 Rusticated Bent Rhodesian 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’s Select line is, as the name implies, one of their higher grade offerings. This is also indicated by the weißer Punkt (‘white dot’) on its stem, a trademark Vauen has battled with Dunhill over for around 100 years. This Select is a very attractive Rhodesian, though one which is more stout and full than its traditional iterations. The pipe combines a bold, smooth rim with pebble-dash rustication, along with a silver faux-spigot mount.

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.
