Smoking tobacco allows you a variety of flavors and types from which to choose. Shouldn’t you also have a variety of options for smoking tobacco? Whether you are a collector of glass pipes or you actually use them, you do have several options when you are looking for a unique hand blown glass pipe on Long Island. The following will discuss the basics of hand blown glass pipes.
The Basic Makeup of Glass Pipes
Just like any tobacco pipe, glass pipes have a bowl for the tobacco, a shank where the smoke travels to the bit, and the bit which is the mouthpiece of the pipe. Hand blown glass pipes are unique, beautiful, versatile, and glass does not affect the flavor of tobacco the way wood, metal, clay, and corncob pipes can. Flavor is important to tobacco smokers.
Glass as a Renewable Resource
Did you know that glass can be cleaned, sterilized, and reused safely making it a renewable material? The same holds true for glass pipes. For people concerned about bacteria and germs that get into their pipes, glass is a good alternative to other kinds of pipes because a thorough cleaning will eliminate all germs and bacteria from them.
Choosing a Glass Pipe
Choosing your pipe involves your specific needs, wants, and budget. Some factors to consider when choosing a glass pipe include the size, the position of the third hold, its mobility, color, clean design, pattern, thickness, surface, and quality. If you are using glass pipes as decorative collectibles and you do not smoke, you will consider the value, quality, uniqueness, design, and color more than its functionality. Likewise, if you smoke tobacco, you will consider functionality over appearance in most cases.
These are just a few aspects of glass pipes that should be of interest to you. It is important to choose a glass pipe that is of quality and that the glass blowers are qualified and experienced at designing and blowing these pipes.
