Gandalf pipes are popular among Tolkien fans and others looking for that wizarding pipe. These pipes have a long stem and deep bowl like the iconic pipe Gandalf uses in Lord of the Rings. Gandalf pipes can be made of wood, glass or silicone and can come in a variety of sizes. Keep reading for a breakdown on how to choose the best pipe.
Gandalf pipes are homogenous in that they all have a long stem and deep bowl but they can vary quite a bit. Traditional Gandalf pipes are made of wood but some are made of glass or silicone. They can also vary in length quite a bit. Wood Gandalf pipes are usually a traditional color scheme but glass and silicone pipes come in a variety of cool color options.
Traditional Gandalf pipes are made of wood and this is the best choice if you are looking for a true wizard pipe. Glass gandalf pipes offer the clean taste of glass and cool color options. These may also come in more artistic designs as glass can be blown to any shape. Recently, silicone has become a popular material for all types of pipes, bongs, and dab rigs. Silicone pipes are ultra durable and usually have a glass bowl.
While Gandalf’s pipe was just over 13”, Gandalf-style pipes usually vary from about 8 to 14” in stem length. Although, we have even seen some as long as two feet. The best length depends on your personal preference. A shorter pipe is easier to use, but the long pipes are definitely cooler!
Gandalf pipes are definitely a cool novelty pipe but probably are not the most convenient or efficient. Glass spoon pipes are designed for smoking dry herbs and usually have a carburetor which helps clear the smoke from the stem at the end of a hit. While some glass Gandalf pipes have a carburetor, most pipes do not. If you are buying your first pipe and want something convenient, easy to use and efficient, a glass spoon pipe is a solid choice but if you are looking for a cool novelty pipe, a Gandalf pipe is a great addition to your smoking quiver.
There are many variations on the traditional Gandalf pipe. Below we list some different types of Gandalf pipes and the features of each one.
While these are not the traditional Gandalf pipes, glass pipes have long been a favorite for dry herb connoisseurs. They offer great taste and can be cleaned easily. Additionally, glass can be blown in artistic ways and offer all sorts of color options. You can get rasta-colored pipes, other cool patterns and even color changing pipes that develop colors as you use them.
These are the most traditional Gandalf pipes. They can vary in quality and length. Fine wood pipes could last a lifetime but will also cost more than value pipes. Pipes vary from around 8 - 14 inches in stem length, some even longer. Shorter pipes are easier to use and more convenient for travel, but a longer pipe makes a unique gift for a Lord of the Rings fan.
Silicone pipes, bongs and dab rigs have become very popular in recent years. Silicone pipes are durable and easy to clean. Furthermore, silicone pipes can come in all sorts of cool designs and themes. Most silicone Gandalf pipes have a glass bowl to maximize flavor and avoid having direct contact between flame and silicone.
Gandalf pipes are already unique on their own but there are different color and shape designs that can make them even more unique. You can even get a local glass blower to make you a custom glass Gandalf pipe that is just right for you. We will warn you that this could come with a steep price tag.
