Vauen: Kira Sandblasted (515) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-457-5372
The "15" bent Apple from Vauen personifies the German marque's convention for robust proportions and plump curves, elevating the classic design with an extra-sinuous gesture and hearty bowl. It's a versatile pipe for multiple smoking postures whether you prefer hands-free clenching or in-hand cradling — or a combination of both.
Introduced in 2021, the Kira line presents Vauen shapes in a rich contrast stain, requiring an intensive process of staining and sanding to finish the stummel in two distinct stain colors, with this piece featuring a richly textured sandblast. The line's name derives from the Sanskrit word for "ray of sunshine," and the dramatically contrasted presentation does well to support that sunny theme, with bronze- and silver-hued accents echoing the warm and bright motif.-Truett Smith
