Glass Hand Pipes 101
Surprisingly, hand pipes have been around since at least 500 BC, when they were commonly used as a ceremonial tool or for smoking tobacco and herbs. Their design has hardly changed since then. A glass hand pipe often serves as many smokers’ first piece due to the small size and approachability of the piece. Glass pipes are more convenient than other pieces you can buy online because they require less maintenance and are easy to clean. Generally, these pipes are dry-smoke pieces, meaning there is no water diffusion, but there are exceptions.
The bowl, where the herb is packed, is one of the basic parts of a glass hand pipe. The carb is a small hole that, when covered, allows the user to control the smoke build-up. Lastly, the mouthpiece is where smoke is inhaled. To use a hand pipe, pack the bowl chamber, cover the carb, ignite what you are smoking with a flame, inhale, and remove your finger from the carb to clear the smoke.
Types of Glass Hand Pipes
Spoons are the standard, ubiquitous hand pipes that are easily recognizable by their linear design. A variety of spoons from basic shapes to artistic pieces, like the Empire Glassworks’ owl pipe, are available to buy online through Glass City Pipes. Another popular type of hand pipe is the Sherlock. These are shaped like a saxophone and are fashioned after the old-timey pipe the very same detective would puff on. The curve on such a vintage-inspired pipe allows for more cooling time before the smoke is inhaled by the user. There are other famous inspired shapes as well, such as the long and thin Gandalf, and more.
