In this tobacco pipe we see a wonderful harmony of different countries' influence in pipe making. "Laiton" is French and means brass, and was the inspiration term for this pipe. The bent apple shape and saddle bit stem classify this pipe as a bit American. However, this French-American pipe was actually designed and produced in Germany by the Vauen pipe company. This pipe is not just an exceptionally piece but is a symbol of solidarity in the pipe smoking community.

Great pipe for your collection. It's pretty affordable for a high end vauen made pipe like this, compared to other vauen pipes, and is also beautiful. I would recommend this pipe even for your daily use.
