Useful Information on Glass Pipes

By Barclay Baker Subscribe to RSS | December 29th 2011 | Views:

Whenever I think about smoking, I visualize myself with different types of glass pipes. This situation is common with most of the users because glass smoking pipes have become extremely popular among classy tobacco smokers. The main reason for this popularity is easy availability of glass pipes and creative options to choose from. These pipes are widely used in all corners of the world. Moreover, glass manufacturers offer unique pipes that come in variety of shapes, structures, sizes and shades.


The use of glass vessel dates back to the Mesopotamian and Egyptian civilization (around 1500 BC) when these glass pipes were used in Cairo. The tools manufactured in that period were made up of mixed glass that is glass casted with ashes, sand, lime and clay or dung. They were molded into a structure and after they were cooled down, the core was dug out to leave the glass pipe intact.

Popular Choices:

The inside-out glass pipes are widely used tools in the present time. They’re made with decorative, colorful Pyrex glass pieces that reflect a 3D pattern when seen from a distant spot. Though they are simple structure yet, designing these pieces require skill, labor and great patience because glass blowers have to layer the glass pieces quite carefully.

Tips for using:

These glass pipes get dirty very easily because they’re filled with residues. In case you want to use them frequently, you should blow out the ashes after using them or, clear them with the help of a toothpick. You can even use a sleek pipe cleaner for cleaning the insides. These cleaners are available at smoking shops only.

Maintenance and repair:

If you possess an expensive smoking pipe, it is highly recommended that you pick a case for preserving it. If possible, keep it safely and use it on rare occasions only. Also, make sure it is kept away from the reach of pets and kids.

Since glass is a delicate object, it is necessary for you to use these glass pipes with proper precautions. If your pipes get cracked or damaged, you should get them repaired immediately. Simply put the cracked part over a stove or burner and let it heat up. Once glass starts melting, the splits will immediately disappear. Now keep it aside for at least thirty to fifty minutes and let it cool down. Thus, you can prevent them from cracking.
