This beaker base water pipe comes in several variants which feature green and blue coloring as well as clear glass components. The mouthpiece, bowl, beaker-shaped base, and tree percs are all blue in color, whereas the neck itself is made of only clear glass. The two four-arm tree percs add optimum filtration, while the ice pinch feature improves any user’s smoking experience.
From a functional standpoint, the pull could not be smoother; the double tree perc diffusion removes all traces of harshness from your smoke, leaving you with only the smoothest, cleanest water pipe hit. Aesthetically speaking, this piece offers you a modern twist on a classic design.
This piece from Smoke Cartel is a clear straight tube with a dome shower head. It has an ice pinch just above the shower head and functions to its ultimate capacity due to its sleek, simplistic design. A great piece for beginners that want to step up their glass game, the straight tube offers everything you need from a traditional water pipe to get the job done without costing too much money, making it an ideal piece for a gift this holiday season.
These nectar collectors come as a kit with a detachable neck, body with water chamber, a titanium tip, and a keck clip. The nectar collector is a great addition to any collection for the smoking aficionado. A relatively new innovation designed to vaporize concentrates, this is the only piece that is missing from everyone’s collection! It’s a perfect gift for the smoker that already has everything.
Smoke Cartel is the proud inventor of this wild water pipe. It’s lovingly dubbed the “Smokenado” because the body shape and small turbine perc create a spinning vortex in the top chamber that looks like a twister you wouldn’t mind being around. Because the turbine spins the water and smoke so intensely, this piece has a very strong pull and amazing percolation. If you’re looking for a conversation starter, this is piece for you (or your friends, of course)!
An instant eye-catcher, the “Colorship” provides the same great function with the signature Faberge Egg body design as the famous Motherships, only without breaking the bank! It also has an inception-style showerhead perc to maximize filtration and give you the smoothest hit possible. Now with color accents in the middle of the body, the base, and lip, it’s ready for its place in the center of your table!
This baby bottle will have you in tears…from all the heavy, milky rips, of course! Ideal for the concentrate lover who appreciates form and function, the baby bottle egg rig won’t leave you disappointed. Featuring a flame-polished joint, a slitted angled downstem, and Swiss percolation with holes throughout the body of the bottle that resemble Swiss cheese, the diffusion of smoke and water in this piece is phenomenal.
This Swiss Perc recycler functions beautifully. With the added percolation of the recycler, this piece is truly a great oil rig. Being a natural recycler in itself, it creates optimal filtration and an excellent taste, allowing you to taste all of the great flavor notes in your legal oils and concentrates. As an added safety measure, the bent neck style of this piece protects your face from the heat of the nail.
This piece comes to you at a lower price point than most other Swiss perc pieces, making it an undeniably good pick for a gift this holiday season.
Recyclers are praised for their cleaner, smoother hits, and this rig features a double-ended inline percolator, known as a hammerhead perc, as well as a secondary chamber for excellent filtration and recycling. It ships with a 14.5mm female glass dome and glass nail.
This is a great introductory recycler that functions beautifully while showing you the intricate movement of the recycling water and smoke.
Sesh Supply presents the Scylla, beast of the seas! Spinning like a cyclone, the Scylla swirls each hit you take — how fun is that? Although this beaker base is short in stature, it makes up for its size with its gnarly propeller perc. The spinning motion from the propeller creates a spinning percolation, spinning both smoke and water, and the bent neck controls any splash that works its way towards the top of the beaker.
The pipe has a 90 degree joint that leads to the perc, and ships with your choice of a flower bowl or oil dome and nail.
Spoon meets Bubbler to create a product that’s perfect for the on-the-go adventurer who loves the form and portability of a spoon, but yearns for the percolation and filtration of a bubbler. It’s spill-proof, easy to use, prevents splash-back, and comes with a healthy sized bowl.
Simply fill the Theseus with water through the mouthpiece end and you’re all set to go. Using a unique internal chamber system, smoke is filtered through the water, but the water doesn’t spill out or splash into your mouth. To empty, simply blow air through the mouthpiece and the water will be forced out the choke.
The Theseus is one of Sesh Supply’s hottest pieces, so be sure to snag one before they run out!
No glass collection is complete without an ash catcher. This is a classic angled ash catcher, available in any size to fit your pipe. Ash catchers help to keep your glass clean and provide an extra layer of filtration to keep your hits cleaner. This model and many other types of ash catchers are available to you through Smoke Cartel’s online shop.
