This Vauen Churchwarden model has chosen a Rhodesian shaped bowl as its centerpiece. There is no doubt that many things come to your mind when you see a long churchwarden style pipe like this. We tend to be reminded of a great book and smoking in front of an open fire, that is we suggest you smoke this pipe in the heart of winter with an intense novel in your hands.

    Stunning quality and experience

    Posted by Kurt on 8th Jul 2019

    This is my first filter pipe. After a lot of research and general appreciation for German engineering, I chose to go with the 9mm filter system, the Vauen brand, the churchwarden style for coolness, and the Rhodesian bowl for its looks. The mouthpiece is sturdy and doesn't dent with moderate teeth clenching (when holding the pipe between teeth and lighting with both hands). The stem fits so perfectly in the neck that I've never had any problem twisting on or off, adjusting the angle mid-smoke. The bowl slowly warms as I smoke, warning me to slow down if I'm smoking too hot. After trying with several types of tobacco, I enjoy the filter experience with all of them, but find it especially beneficial with intense tobaccos like a navy flake or strong Englishes, as it takes out the bite while preserving and enhancing the flavor. The shorter stem is awesome for taking this pipe on the go. The filters slide in perfectly but can be a little difficult to remove immediately after smoking, especially if it's very wet tobacco, as they get soggy. Overall, I've found my lifetime brand in Vauen that will become a collection of estate pipes to pass on.
