Defining Cool Pipes
Cool. What a loaded word. We hope to do it justice. We’d like to strip “cool” down to its naked, true self through the lens of cool pipes. Cool pipes are an art form that blend beauty and functionality to create the ultimate experience – the ultimate high. A truly cool piece is not about stroking the ego. It’s not about what people will think or say. At the core, cool is more about the feeling it inspires in you – a sense of enthusiasm, playfulness or even wonder.
Cool is unquestionably tied to novelty. But we’re hoping to bring back the original meaning of novelty – as something new and unique – not just a mere trend bound to become unoriginal.
As with most things, cool by our definition is in the eye of the beholder, not something inextricably linked to popularity. The true nature of cool is about creating an atmosphere all its own through cultivated originality.
Whether it’s a cool scorpion pipe that glows in the dark or a clever lipstick pipe that’s become your best kept secret, a cool smoking pipe has a certain aura about it. It’s got a magnetism that makes you want to reach out and touch it, and even more so, smoke it.

How to Cool Down Smoke from a Pipe?
What is a cool pipe if it’s harsh on the throat? It’s most definitely not cool. That’s why we’ve outlined a few methods that can help make your hits less harsh whether you choose a Gandalf pipe with a long stem or a traditional spoon pipe.
- Inhale slowly – One of the simplest ways to cool smoke is to inhale more gently. This allows the smoke some time to cool before it passes through the stem and reaches your lips.
- Tap the carb – As you light the bowl to take a hit, tap the carb hole which will allow more air into the pipe’s stem. The additional airflow helps to cool smoke so that it’s less harsh.
- Cornering – Although cornering is a technique most commonly used with bongs, it’s a great way to make sure that each hit is as fresh as the last since you are only lighting a small section of ground herb at a time.
- Snaps – Instead of packing a full bowl consider adding a small amount of herb instead that way you can smoke it all at once. This will help to reduce the harshness since you will always be smoking fresh herb.
- Ice Cold Water – If your pipe duals as a bubbler, as is the case with most hammer pipes, fill nearly one third of the chamber with ice cold water.
