The helix pipe is not just a sexy piece of glass, it is also one of the best functional smoking pipe styles in existence.
Many companies make such a pipe, but some do it better than the rest.
What set’s the competition apart you ask?
Two things – design, and craftsmanship!
Even though the shape of the helix pipe can also be considered part of the design, in this article we are referring to the character of the pipe created when the artist adds colors and additional glass to either the inside of the pipe, the outside of the pipe, or both. And the Craftsmanship refers to symmetrical and structural shape of the Helix chamber.
The design is primarily put in place to please the eye, but the esthetics of the pipe is still very important. Just as the dark hues of the color blue will suppress your appetite, the character of the helix pipe can similarly affect your smoking enjoyment. Many tokers choose a smoking pipe with colors that speak to them and you would be hard pressed to find a smoker who prefers a plain clear-glass pipe, but the shape of the helix pipe is so beautiful and yet so simplistic that it’s cylindrical beauty can be appreciated without any addition at all.
Smoking herbal substances can be quite relaxing and enjoyable when smoked out of the correct pipe, but more often than not we tend to choose a smoking pipe for the wrong reasons and end up paying the price for it.
If you are a novice smoker you are probably rolling your eyes right about now and probably considering not reading any more of this article, after all a pipe is a pipe is a pipe – right?… Well Not Exactly!
Smoking pipes can be made out of many materials; some more hazardous than others. And while non smokers will question whether or not a smoker truly cares about their own health, I know for a fact that most smokers do. Not everyone is a chronic smoker! Some of us like to smoke recreationally and see no harm in the occasional toke or two. I know cigarette smokers that also seem to care a great deal about their health – they just can’t kick the habit. The point is, someones smoking habit does not dictate that they should inflict further damage on their lungs by using smoking pipes that are toxic when other options available.
