DB premier German pipes made a very welcomed return to the UK pipe market in 2012 and we were delighted to see their pipe of the year for 2014, which went down a treat with UK fans of these pipes. It is with great delight that we can now offer you their 2015 pipe of the year.
DB stands for Design Berlin so for those that aren’t that good at Geography these pipes are German made. I’m sure you don’t need us to educate you on the reputation of German engineering! The DB Mariner is no exception!
DB Pipe of the Year 2014
The Germans have an outstanding reputation for quality and design so when they loosen the designers reigns once a year they always produce something quite special. The 2015 has a similar feel to the 2014 but it’s got an extra element of eccentricity with an even more unique shape.
For 2015 Design Berlin have stuck with their impressive teak finish, which really highlights the grain and the varying shades on different panels looks quite simply stunning! The shape is another shape that we have never seen before even among all the boutique one offs we see at trade shows. This shape is very comfortable in the hand and is almost ergonomic to the right handed. After initially picking it up with the right hand we were prepared to label it a right handed pipe but it is deceivingly comfortable in the left hand as the point sits perfectly at the base of the thumb.
A great feature of the 2015 model is that it is a stand alone pipe meaning it will stand unaided on the side board reducing tobacco spillages and making it a great display piece while resting.
Another feature we don’t often see is the dual bore in the mouthpiece. This makes the stem much stronger and resilient to biting through, whilst providing a smoother more controlled draw.
Each pipe is individually numbered as one of only 500 and comes with a certificate of authenticity. (Please contact us for specific numbered models)
Double Channel Twin Bore Stem
The DB pipe of the year 2015 incorporates a double smoking channel to provide a cooler smoke, easier draw and better development of the tobacco flavours.
9mm Absorbent Filter
The DB Pipe of the year 2015 is designed for use with any 9mm Absorbent Filters but also comes with an adaptor to allow the pipe to be used with a metal condensing filter or without a filter.
The larger diameter allows more smoke to pass through the filter, with less restriction, which makes for a better draw compared to the 6mm filters. The highly absorbent filters have a very high surface area resulting in excellent absorption of the tar as the smoke passes through without affecting draw or flavour.
No mess no fuss, simply throw the filter in the bin when it turns a dark brown colour.
The pipes have a standard 9mm bore so can be used with any brand of 9mm filter if preferred.
