Holy smokes! These carbon fiber Purisme pipes are truly head turning. Not only because of the apparent carbon fiber use, but because of its truly unique and non-traditional design.
The Purisme pipe (limited edition) was sold in a small quantity of 25 units, handmade on request for single production. I’d say the coolest feature of the Purisme pipe is its unique “UpsideDown” pipe head, which gives it that unique look that no other pipe has.
Like I said before, these pipes were not available for long in their 25 unit stock but have no fear, VAUEN is here. VAUEN is known as the oldest and largest German pipe manufacturer located in Nurnberg. They also produce this classic pipe in non-carbon fiber versions, using wood. And now, they have teamed up with Purisme to almost duplicate the carbon fiber pipe, with just a few minor changes.
The original limited edition pipe featured a noticeably thinner silver border and had a 10 degree angle compared to the VAUEN version that has a 25 degree angle. The original also used 245g Twill Carbon while the newer version used 200g 3K Koper 2×2 Carbon.
The carbon fiber Purisme pipes by VAUEN are available directly from Purisme (or through us by special order) for a little over $750. Not a smoker?
