Following the success of “The Lord of the Rings”, a collection with the name "Auenland –The Shire" has been launched due to the high demand for this particular style of pipe. This is the Balbor in a sandblasted version with acrylic bit at end of stem for hygienic smoking - specially made by VAUEN. As on all Vauen pipes you have a filter option on these pipes. We recommend you use by Dr. Perl junior 9 mm active carbon filters. The Auenland pipes are all delivered in a nice box. Pipe stand shown on last picture must be bought separately.
