Vauen: Kansas Sandblasted (4743) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-457-2721
Once upon a time there was a Savinelli sub-brand called the Estella, made up of freehand pipes in a distinctive rusticated finish. Later that name was moved to series under the Savinelli brand itself, made up of their standard chart shapes but keeping the finish style of the freehands. I suspect something like that happened with the Kansas, which I've only ever seen mentioned before as a Vauen sub-brand, produced by Achaiki Amadeus (Vauen's Greek briar supplier). Clearly this is a Vauen shape, and clearly it has "Vauen" stamped right on the briar. With a dark walnut finish, light sandblast, and simple, tasteful single-ring nickel accent, whatever the backstory may be, this makes for a handsome series.
