Magnetic Journey Pipe V3

There are many ways in which people choose to enjoy a smoke but, the trusty pipe has stood the test of time. History suggests that the tradition of pipe smoking was around and practiced by Native Americans long before it was introduced into European cultures in the 1500’s. Although it is disputed, school history had us all believe it was Sir Walter Raleigh brought it to England, along with the humble potato, from Virginia in 1586, can you recall the picture of him peacefully smoking his pipe when his servant, who believed he was on fire, threw a bucket of water over him!

Pipes here in the UK have been made from a variety of materials including: briar, clay, ceramic, corncob, glass, meerschaum, metal, gourd, stone, wood, the classic English pipe was made from various combinations, most notably was the Calabash, or “Sherlock Holmes”.

To get the very best smoke, pipes have to be kept clean, this can be tiresome for some people, they will then be delighted therefore with the Magnetic Journey Pipe V3 which is screen free, easy to clean and very portable, making it ideal  for all occasions including travel. Because it has no screen, buying replacement screens is not necessary, it is very easy to disassemble and can be cleaned after use with a wipe from an alcohol wipe; in just 30 seconds, you’ll have a fresh, clean pipe.

The Magnetic Journey Pipe V3 is assembled in three parts and these are held together with two strong magnets in the centre of the pipe. It is heat resistant and therefore stays cool to the touch; it has a locking lid which means that when you have had a satisfying smoke, just snap the lid down and this puts out the tobacco or herbal mixture that has been smoked.

We offer the Magnetic Journey Pipe in two distinctive colours, “Nickel and Dime, or Passiv-8” and we are giving a discount of 14% of the recommended price, making our price just £29.99. These pipes are not only beautiful to look at, but they deliver a cool smoke, and are incredibly simple to use and easy to clean.

Screen Queen Deluxe Screenless Pipe

The main thing that most of us want when lighting up and enjoying a pipe of tobacco or herbs, is a cool clean smoke, the Screen Queen Deluxe Screenless Pipe is designed to provide just that. This pipe is certainly one of the most reliable, easy to use, and easy to clean and generally provides a great smoke, according to the feedback from users have said when they have reported back to us.

The removable bottom of the bowl acts as a screen or gauze, which means that no additional screen is needed. Removing the screw in plug at that bottom of the bowl ensures that the user can clean it with ease and it also means that when in use provides good airflow for the perfect burn, as it helps keeps ashes and plant material from obstructing the airway. From around the time when pipes first came upon the scene, one thing that smokers preferred was a long stem; this meant that the smoke was cooled prior to reaching them; this as we know ensures a pleasurable smoke. This is something the Screen Queen Deluxe offers with its long stem, cooling the smoke as well as catching a lot of the tar that you would otherwise inhale, again easily cleaned using a long pipe cleaner.

Offered in a choice of colours, blue, bronze, green, red black or silver and presented in its own hinged box, this is a pipe for the connoisseur that guarantees: No screen or gauze needed, sleek in appearance, easy to take apart, clean and reassemble, with a guaranteed even burn.  Put simply this pipe is amazing.

As a smoker you will find that it will sit perfectly on a flat surface, useful when you need to collect another beer from the fridge, or perhaps just relaxing between smokes and it will not get knocked over either.

Smoking a pipe is satisfying as we all know; Albert Einstein once remarked that pipe smoking “contributed to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” Whether the observation is true or not, pipe smoking has had many other famous devotees, among them Franklin D. Roosevelt, Mark Twain, and the fictional Sherlock Homes, who often disappeared into a haze of pipe smoke while solving his cases. Of course we cannot claim that any of these eminent persons have smoked an Upright Mirror Pipe, but had this pipe been around then, then they probably would.

We strongly recommend that you use a screen for this pipe, we offer a brass made screen which is flexible, and so it can be moulded into the required shape and size for your pipe bowl.

Join the Sherlock Holmes Pipe smokers this Christmas

Sherlock Holmes had a wonderful selection of pipes which he smoked, many of which have been seen on the BBC television series; naturally this has fuelled a renewed interest in the famous style. We feature a number of these on our web pages, all of which are manufactured by Raw, handmade from uncoated, natural eco-wood called Brown Knotwood from the Pearl Valley of Fujian china.

From our selection of Sherlock style, we find that the most popular appears to be the Raw Natural Pipe, a beautiful handmade example. The bowl is a very generous ½ inches in width, holding enough of your favourite tobacco to satisfy the most serious of smokers. Because this pipe is made from natural wood, it will require to be “broken in” and the suggestion from Raw themselves, is that the best way to do this is to use either honey or you could use a pipe sweetener, this has the effect of coating the bowl and soon the wood will become accustomed to the heat of glowing tobacco, and soon you will be able to build up a good coating of carbon.

With any smoking device, it is essential that the stem and mouthpiece are kept scrupulously clean and as an aid the plastic mouthpiece, which is approximately 5.5 inches in length, which is easy to remove to clean, the stem is pre-loaded with a Corleone smoking filter. Supplied along with the Raw Natural Pipe, we include a neat canvas carrying pouch and a micro-fibre cleaning cloth. The perfect Christmas, or any time gift.

Chanupa Coloured Hammer Bubbler

Smoking the “peace pipe” was usually depicted in American movies as the Captain of the gallant U.S. Cavalry rode in to rescue the beleaguered settlers, just in the nick of time, to sit with the Chief of the tribe to agree safe passage for the battered waggon train.

The beautiful Chanupa Coloured Hammer Bubbler could well have been passed around at the “pow wow” as the one we feature is named after the sacred pipe of the Lakota tribe. The Lakota are a tribe who live on the northern plains of North America. They are closely related by culture, language, and history to other tribes who together are often referred to as ‘Sioux’.

The pipe is a beautiful piece of work and certainly can be described as a work of art in glass, aesthetically mind blowing. However it is not just something that is made as an ornament, although it will sit perfectly on your table and be admired when not in use. The pipe has been designed to hold a small amount of water in the bowl, which will cool the smoke as well as filtering it before it reaches your mouth.

The 10 cm pipe is decorated with red and white swirled glass and the background gives an appearance of a night time sky filled with stars overlooking the prairie. All the Chapuna Coloured Hammer Bubbler pipes are handmade and therefore the colours as well as the designs on them will vary from pipe to pipe.
