Glass Pipes for Sale

Posted

So you’re on the hunt for your next glass pipe? Or you’re planning on getting your very first one and you’re wondering how to go about it. What are the important things to look out for? Shopping for glass pipes is not an easy process, it can be quite difficult, once you get out there and find out the dizzying array of pipes on offer, it can get a bit overwhelming. A good way to cut through the haze and make a good decision on the one or two (or however many glass pipes you want to buy) that suits you best is to list the major sticking points that will affect the whole process of selecting and buying your pipe.

The main factors we will be considering are how much money you are willing to part with to get one, financial, the physical appearance and how well its look and design fits your style or the aesthetics, and finally the construction, how well made it is.

To start off, let’s consider the finances, because ultimately that is what it will boil down to, if you can afford the pipe you have so painstakingly selected. It won’t be any use going through the whole process to find one that you know fits you just right, that you’ll absolutely love, only to realize that it is beyond your budget so you can’t afford it. You should always buy the absolute best you can afford. Prices range from as low as $20 to over $1000, and in between those two you will definitely find one that will fit your needs and your wallet.

Once you have decided how much you want to spend, you’re ready to go hunting and it won’t be difficult to find glass pipes for sale, there are literally hundreds of places that stock them. You should go for a pipe that catches your eye. It should look and feel just right to you. As stated before, the different designs, types, sizes, colours and shapes of glass water pipes are infinite, you are sure to find a lot of them that you’ll absolutely fall in love with but keep looking, one will catch your eye, reach out and whisper quietly to you “take me home with you”. Once that happens, it’s time to find out if it is really the one for you, that’s where the physical inspection comes in.

When considering the construction, you have to make sure that the pipe can easily be cleaned, lighted and smoked without any problems. Here are a few things in particular to look out for that should not be present in a well-made pipe; the parts should be well-aligned, with a smooth airway from the draft hole to the mouthpiece. Any disruption will cause turbulence and, in effect, loud and wet smoking. Some pipes are purposefully made with moisture traps though, as this is a preference for some people. The number of ‘fills’, holes in the pipe filled with putty, should be as few as possible. These do not directly affect the actual smoking of the pipe but will not age as well as the rest of the pipe and will cause it to take on a mottled appearance over time.

On the issue of finishes of the pipe, it is best to avoid varnished or sealed finishes as they tend to flake or bubble with use. Pipe makers use a wide array of varnishes as finishes on their products and some well-made ones will not have this issue even though they are heavily finished.

Some other less important things to look out for are; weight, the lighter a pipe is the easier it is to hold in the mouth for extended periods, sandpits, these are usually inevitable but the fewer there are the better, and finally, the draft hole, this should end in the bottom of the bowl, not partway upside, be as close to the centre of the bowl as possible and should be perfectly aligned with the stem’s air hole.

There are a few other things to look out for but these are the most important to consider, as you gain more experience with smoking and find out what you like, selecting a glass pipe for sale to buy will be much easier and more intuitive for you.
