Vauen: Classic Smooth (3940) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-457-1482
Shape labeling can be a tricky thing, and to anyone besides us pipe enthusiast, the exercise could appear completely futile, much like comic geeks arguing the pros and cons of withdrawing Superman's trademark red underwear from the new Man of Steel movie. Who cares, right? Well, we at Smokingpipes do, and a pipe shape can be far more relevant than heroic undergarments (only if its not the source of their superpowers), because of the way it functions--a Churchwarden's smoke is far different from a meerschaum Prince "nose warmer", am I right? In saying that, the "3940", to my eye, is far closer in design to Apple than the Pot, as it is generously curved, baring its trademark soft, rounded cheeks, thick, beefy shank, and tapering bowl; and given the extension of the bowl, your going to be able to pack in a bit more of the blends you love. See, I don't feel bad about going there...
