Bongs and Water Pipes have been a favorite among smokers for centuries. They're constructed to filter particles in your smoke through water; offering a cleaner and cooler hit. These water pipes are typically made from hand blown glass and other durable materials, such as silicone. At Samurai Blaze we stock a large collection of bongs and water pipes. We offer free shipping and guarantee your Glass Water Pipe to arrive in perfect condition.
There are a million bongs online; each slightly different in shape, color, size, etc... It can be overwhelming choosing one. Bongs can also be expensive, so you need to be certain it will last a long time.
Much like luxury watches and their complicated movements, bongs can be as simple as the common beaker bong, or as complicated as a recycler with many intricate chambers and percolators.
The Beaker Bong is most distinguished by the cone shape base and tube-like neck. They’re typically more stable due to their wider base and lower center of gravity. If you’re clumsy and tend to knock things over, as I often do, you may consider this style to be the right one for you.
The Bubble Base, or Bubble Bottom Bong is probably the most recognizable of the shapes. The spherical shape base resembles a bubble; round with a flat bottom. These are more of a personal preference as they serve the same function as the Beaker Bong, however, not as stable. If you prefer the style of the Bubble Base Bong, select one that has a wide flat bottom and a shorter neck; this will ensure a better center of gravity.
The Straight Tube bong, in my opinion, is the sweet-spot for all levels of smokers. The long straight tube is secured with a wide base for stability. They’re easier to pass in group sessions, and depending on the thickness of the glass, they can be quite durable. The Straight Tube waterpipe usually features an interchangeable downstem and bowl, which can be easily upgraded with Ashcatchers, Quartz Nails, Titanium Nails, Percolators, etc… If you are just starting out, or looking for a good daily driver, a Straight Tube Bong may be the one for you.
The Gravity Bong, a.k.a. Grav, a.k.a. Ghetto Bong is like a science experiment gone bad-ass! In my college years, I would make these from plastic soda bottles and 5-gallon buckets. I’m much older now, so I’m stoked brands like GRAV make a presentable piece that I can share with my friends. The Gravity Bong will typically be 2 separate containers; one filled with water, and the other with a bowl over the mouth piece. The container with the mouth piece is inserted into the container with the water. Once the herb is ignited, the container with the herb is slowly pulled up from the water, causing a vacuum for the smoke. Ensuring the container is not completely out of the water, you first remove the bowl and herb, then place your mouth around the opening, and inhale while pushing the container back into the water. The pressure caused by this will expel the smoke rapidly and smoother than a standard bong. For a unique experience, or to re-live the past, check these bad boys out!
These are like the fine art of bong making. Local artist and glass blowers use their creative skills to produce one-of-a-kind pieces. As these are not mass produced, they can be pricey, but worth the money if you like the art.
Silicone bongs are a new player in the game. There are several benefits to silicone over glass; Durability, price, and they are extremely easy-to-clean. Higher-end silicone bongs like the ones we manufacture at Samurai Blaze are made from platinum cured silicone and custom molded to our designs. As these are rubber, they’re essentially indestructible. Silicone is also resilient to heat and thermal stress, which is good for Dabs. Silicone bongs are dishwasher safe and easy to travel with. Some smokers claim silicone bongs have a plastic taste, therefor glass is preferred. This is only true if the bong is not washed after manufacturing. A quick rinse will rid any rubber taste from a silicone bong. If you are in the market for an affordable bong that will last forever, check out silicone.
Glass Bongs can come in a variety of thickness and quality. The raw materials used in glass production can impact the durability and quality of your bong. Higher-end bongs will typically use the phrase, “Borosilicate Glass.” Borosilicate Glass is made from silica and boron trioxide, which has a higher resistance to heat stress. This type of glass is commonly used by well-known brands and are more expensive than the bongs found at your local convenient store.
Thick Glass Bongs typically refer to 9mm glass bongs. The tubing used to make the bongs have a 9mm thick wall. These 9mm bongs are more durable than the standard 5mm and 7mm waterpipes. They are also more expensive and harder to come by. At Samurai Blaze we carry several 9mm bongs that are guaranteed to last a long time.
Downstems come in several standard joint sizes, 10mm, 14mm and 18mm. Some bongs will have a removable downstem that is submerged in the base of the pipe. The downstem will usually have slits or holes that allow the smoke to percolate as it leaves the water. Bongs that do not have a removable downstem will usually have an internal percolator.
An Ice Pinch is common on Straight Tube Bongs. They add a cooling effect to your smoke by holding ice cubes between the water and mouth piece. When you inhale the smoke, its firsts filters through water then cooled through ice. At Samurai Blaze we carry many Ice-Pinch bongs.
Glass bowls are essential to your water pipe; they hold the herb for you to ignite and smoke. A glass bowl can be a male or female joint connection based on your downstem size. At samurai blaze, we stock many glass bowls for you to upgrade your rig.
