Vauen: Kira Smooth (161) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-457-5964
Vauen's shaping style often caters to traditional designs but with slightly more robust proportions for a muscular aesthetic that offers sublime, in-hand comfort. The "61" is one such shape, a bent Brandy of voluptuous curvature and elegant bend but with enough substance and chamber to satisfy contemplative smoking sessions.
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 exuding a silky smooth texture. 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
