Parties. Events. Maybe even your best friend just invited you over to try out their new custom water pipe they just got.

Sure buying a prodo water pipe is no big deal and you can pick up a decent piece for $35-50 bucks… But.
If you care about quality, which I’m sure you do or you would be listening to some guy at your local smoke shop. You’re talking about a hand-blown, custom-made, water pipe.
Some people may say, it’s just a stupid piece of glass.
Well, not glass enthusiasts like us…
We see custom glass pipes & head glass as elegant pieces of luxurious beauty, made by talented artists.
Buying Your Customer Water Pipe
Custom water pipes, just like many other products, have their prices valued depending on several varying factors.
I’ve stated them many times throughout all of our posts but in case you haven’t read them yet, they are – style, brand, quality, and functionality.
Most of the big American Glass pipe brands including Chameleon Glass, Silika, Roor, JM Flow Sci, Black Leaf, Empire Glassworks, Pulse, Black Market, AMG, and many others produce already pre-made custom water pipes.
These may not fit your preference though.
They are made for the general market who wants that little extra in their water pipes to achieve a smooth smoking experience.
If you choose to settle for them, make sure you look at a wide variety in order to buy the best product for yourself.
Most of them are pretty affordable and ranging from as low as $ 50 to $ 500.
