Glass Pipes

Classic, Versatile Pieces

The glass pipe is a classic of the smoking world. They are in most smoker's arsenal of glass due to their portable size, affordable price point, and ease of use and care. The rudimentary parts of hand pipes usually include a mouthpiece, a neck, a bowl, and a carb. Smoke is inhaled through the mouthpiece. The neck connects the mouthpiece to the bowl, where the dry herb is packed. The carb is a small hole on the side of the bowl that helps control airflow, thus the strength of the hit. There are different types of glass pipes to explore from top brands like Grav Labs, AMG, and many more.

The Benefit of Glass Pipes

Hand pipes are most commonly made from glass, though silicone and other mediums are also available. Glass is often considered the best pipe material by the smoking community—especially thick glass from a trusted source—for multiple reasons. Glass pieces are aesthetically appealing and display a high-quality look. It is also stain-resistant and holds up better than silicone when repeatedly cleaned. Glass reacts better to standard cleaning solutions, like acetone and salt, while silicone often requires milder treatments and more elbow grease. The downside is glass's breakability, which means taking extra care when handling glass pipes. However, borosilicate glass (what many Glass City Pipes products are made from) is known for its crack and chip-resistant durability.


Types of Glass Hand Pipes

Spoon Pipes

A Variety of Looks Stemming from One Classic Shape

There are different styles of glass pipes on the market. The spoon pipe is what most people associate as a classic pipe, or hand pipe. The terms are interchangeable. A spoon pipe’s neck is generally straight and its length is around 3 to 4 inches. Spoon pipes allow for inconspicuous smoking because of the smaller, portable size.


Sherlock Pipes

Sherlock pipes are not much different than a spoon pipe, but the shape of the narrow neck curves like an old-school tobacco pipe and its length is a bit longer. The swoop and length of the neck mean the potential for a smoother hit. To some, Sherlock pipes look more interesting than a classic pipe, but they are slightly-less portable.


Unique Pipes

Hand pipes also come in unique designs similar to what Empire Glassworks is known to create. The simplicity of the shape gives artists the flexibility to experiment with fun takes on a classic piece. Unique pipes are typically pricier than standard spoon pipes due to the artistic embellishments and time it takes for artists to make one. They are often used as accent pieces in a collection because the shapes are often not as practical.

Glass City Pipes provide glass pipes from the industry’s well-respected makers and artists who use high-quality materials. Glass City Pipes also offers simple, affordable options for those looking for a basic pipe to get the job done. Take a look at our online catalog to see a range of styles and price points.
