Vauen: Pipe of the Year 2024 Green Smooth (0255) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-457-8801

With roots dating to 1848, Vauen is Germany's largest and oldest pipe making marque, boasting decades of innovations such as the 9mm pipe filter — a feature the majority of their pipes still utilize today. Vauen's annual Pipe of the Year series has been released every year since at least 1993, with each iteration by the German marque being a fine example of the craftsmanship of the artisans they employ. For 2024, Vauen's Pipe of the Year is this gently sinuous bent Dublin design, a fluid and subtly stylized take on the classic profile that's both graceful and muscular in hand. The bowl is the visual center of this shape, standing proudly atop a sweeping heel and presenting boldly flaring walls that expand out to a high-set waist marked with a firm ridge that additionally denotes a Rhodesian-like taper to the rim. These walls are nicely curvaceous, with an especially prominent display of this curvature at the fore, where the wall's lines continue through from the trajectory of the heel: standing out against the more angular wall at the aft side. This bit of angularity tightens the transition a bit, and the shank that lifts out of it extends out with an easy lift toward a junction marked with a band of silvery metal. A black acrylic saddle stem pairs to the stummel here, and it's been shaped with a flared base that's slightly larger than the shank face, balancing some of the bowl's visual weight and drawing one's eye to the aft. Presented across a variety of stylish finishes, this particular 2024 Pipe of the Year showcases a striking green stain and a glossy top coat.
