Picking the metal smoking pipe meant for you

There are a wide range of metal smoking pipes that are available online. In fact the range online is much wider compared to what you will find at a retail store. The advantage is being able to sit in the comfort of your home, choose a pipe of your liking and then have it door delivered to you. But in order for you to make the right choice, there are certain pointers you will need to keep in mind.

You will have to make sure that they pipe you are choosing is of the right size for you. A short one will burn your lip, also if a pipe is to short, it will not allow for the smoke to cool down and you will end up inhaling smoke that is much hotter than it should be. This can damage your respiratory system. Metal pipes that are too long can be difficult to carry around. What you can do is shorten the length of the pipe as per your needs by adjusting the extension pieces. These can be done at head shops of any sort. You also have to make sure you have a flat bottom elbow so that the bowl wont tip over on a steady surface. Some tend to use round elbows and this can end with the bowl tipping over. Other attachments can include a clear smoking chamber.

Metal smoking pipes come with rubber rings that are used to make them to be airtight. These rubber rings are what you use to ensure that all the metal elements are working together in harmony. This allows for the pipe to work at its best and makes the pipes air tight. You will also need pipe screens that prevent ash from being inhaled along with the smoke.Once you buy the pipe of choice, knowing how to maintain it is also as important. You have to be sure to clean it on a regular basis. The simplest way to do this is to dismantle it completely and allow it to soak overnight. Then go over it with some rubbing alcohol or a mild cleaning solution. The mouthpiece is what will need your special attention. Once you have cleaned the metal pipe thoroughly, your smoking experience will be much better.

There are a number of sites online that you can browse through to find the right metal smoking pipe. Be sure to read all their clauses especially on payment and return policies.

Fun Smoking with Glass bubblers

Glass bubblers are a form of water pips with a stem built into the inside of the pipe. The built in glass stem is attached to the bowl at the bottom. Glass Bubblers are quite compact and can be smokes using just one hand. The effect is quite similar to that of the functio glass pipe except that glass bubblers incorporate the use of water. In fact many smokers find themselves more comfortable with a bubbler because the hits are smoother and less harmful to the lungs. Though larger than glass pipes, they are smaller than most water pipes. The actual demand for this form of an in-between pipe is what led to the creation of the glass bubbler. When used the bubbler sounds not unlike a hookah.

Being able to see the smoke you inhale enhances the smoking ritual.

The beauty of glass pipes

Glass Smoking Pipes have become a popular way to smoke not only for their cleaner flavor but also for their enduring artistry. People have become coinsures but even the more thrifty smoker has found glass to be both more pleasant to smoke from and attractive enough to collect. Glass pipes are available in a wide range of shapes and colors and have the distinction of being hand blown by skilled artisans. Every glass pipe is like a snowflake since it one of its kind. Glass blowing is always evolving and glass blowers make it a point to create innovative new designs and styles including glass bubblers, glass bats and glass animal pipes.

Glass blowing is an ancient tradition and one that has been passed down for generations. It takes a couple of years for most people to be proficient in blowing glass pipes. Though there are a lot of variations of glass blowing technique, glass pipes are basically fashioned today like this – glass blowers begin with an elongated piece of glass gauging the thickness of the glass to vary depending on the final piece they envision. The glass is heated with a torch till it is of the consistency that allows for it to be blown. It has to attain the viscosity of honey and then the glass blower is good to go. From this point, he can blow the glass, roll it and manipulate it any way he wishes.

You may wonder how they get those wonderful shades of color mixed into it the glass. The idea is pretty simple in theory. Colored glass is melted onto the glass during the working process. It is worked into the glass in many different ways depending on the desired style. Glass pipes also may change color as you use them. There are special elements that are infused into the glass also the making process.

A popular type of glass pipe is the inside out pipe. Inside out means the inside of the glass pipe has color added to it. The result is that when you look at it and turn it around, it gives you myriad three dimensional shapes to look at, it also is a term used to describe that the pipe is thicker than normal and therefore unlikely to break if dropped. Only skilled glass blowers actually attempt to work at this, but the final product is an absolute collector’s item.

Pyrex glass is most widely used in hand blown glass pipes. since it is a much stronger form of glass. In fact Pyrex glass is what we use for coffee pots, measuring cups and blenders. It is almost impossible to break and does not heat up as you are using the pipe. It also is relatively lighter than regular glass, this makes it all the more portable and comfortable to use and its durability is unmatched. Glass pipes are great way to smoke!
