Vauen pipes
pipestuff-vauenEstablished in 1848, Vauen pipes have been known for quality and craftsmanship for more than 160 years.

Vauen pipes are available at fine pipe and tobacco retailers nationwide. To locate your nearest Vauen dealer, contact its North American distributor, F&K Cigar Co. at 314.423.1968; email: gezvan@fkcigar.com; website: www.fkcigar.com.

Dokha and Medwakh tobacco
Dokha is a traditional Arabic tobacco that has been smoked in the Middle Eastpipestuff-dhoka for more than 500 years. Some Dokha blends, especially those from Turkey and Iran, are mixed with leaves and bark and are available in a variety of strengths and flavors.

Unlike hookah tobacco, Dokha is not cured with molasses or honey, and it contains very high nicotine levels.

Nirvana and the Medwakh.com Premium Dokha kits contain a 15-gram bottle of Dokha tobacco, one premium Medwakh pipe and a pack of pipe filters. Just dip the pipe into the bowl and pack it full. Tamp it and light up to enjoy the strength and flavor of Dokha tobacco.

Lane bulk blends available again
Five popular Lane bulk blends are available for the first time in five years: Hazelnut, Black Raspberry, HG-2000, LL7 and HGL.

The blends have been brought back due to repeated requests from wholesalers, tobacconists and consumers. All five blends are former best-sellers and are manufactured at STG Lane’s facility in Tucker, Ga.

One of the blends, HGL, stands for Herman G. Lane, Lane Ltd.’s founder. According to company lore, Herman’s personal everyday smoke at the old factory in Manhattan was an extremely strong Latakia blend, the aroma of which would overpower anyone in his office. Herman created HGL so he could have the Latakia he desired but still provide a pleasant room note for those around him.

Lane’s pipe tobaccos are available nationwide. Find your closest Lane dealer by contacting Scandinavian Tobacco Group Lane at 800.241.2038; website: www.stglanepipe.com.

Amorelli pipes
The Pen of St. Michael design is based on a Sicilian legend in which St. Michael pursues Lucifer over heaven and earth until Lucifer jumps into Mt. Etna and creates hell. The carving on the Pen of St. Michael bowl exterior is performed by laser. Fertility pipes feature hand-carved agricultural motifs on the bowl.

pipestuff-amorelliThe name for each finish or grade on an Amorelli pipe is inspired by something special pertaining to Sicily. Every Amorelli pipe is also stamped with a triangle, the ancient symbol of Sicily. The three points on the triangle represent the island’s three capes.

All smooth Amorelli pipes are unstained and do not have an interior bowl coating, and each Amorelli pipe is fitted with a Delrin tenon, making it impossible to break the tenon.

To order Amorelli pipes, contact R.D. Field at 4400 Organ Mesa Loop, Las Cruces, NM 88011; phone: 575.526.6132; website: www.rdfield.com.

Captain Black Dark is available in 1.5 oz. pouches and is available nationwide. To find your closest Captain Black Dark seller, contact STG Lane at 800.241.2038; website: www.stglanepipe.com.
