Vauen: Kira Sandblasted (561) (9mm)

Product Number: 002-457-5378

A bent Brandy of subtle Egg-like character, Vauen's "61" design features a plump, tapering bowl with a heel that protrudes every so slightly and sweeps more suddenly into the shank's underside, forgoing the Brandy's typically broader, more voluptuous heel. That said, it's a wonderfully rounded shape, crafted for ergonomic comfort and supported by a demurely bent shank-and-stem combination.

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.
