Also known as hand pipes or dry pipes, spoons are the quintessential smoker's tool. Pocket-sized and easy to use, spoon pipes also come in an infinite array of designs and colors.
Spoons, which are not for eating or stirring unless you want to make a real mess, feature three main parts:
At one end, they feature an indented chamber with a hole called the bowl. This chamber is where smokers will pack and light their favorite herbs. Spoons typically feature carburetors (also known as the carb) at the same end as the bowl. Carbs function to let air into the pipe so that smoke can be easily cleared. The neck and mouthpiece sit at the other end of the spoon to direct the smoke to the user’s mouth.
In terms of artistry, there are fewer variables in constructing a spoon than a water pipe, but they remain a wonderful way to show off your favorite artist’s work on-the-go without lugging around an expensive functional tube. Despite their straightforward nature, making a hand pipe still requires a large amount of training and experience.
