The smoke that is produced from the hand blown glass pipes is very different. The best thing about them is also the fact that you get to see the smoke as it is produced and as it fills the chamber.
Many glass pipes are fumed with gold or silver, making them change vibrant colors the more you smoke them. Other pipes obviously cannot do this. With time, this ends up subtly altering the glass’ original color thereby giving the ‘character’ that a good number of smokers have confessed loving having on their pipes.
In plain and simple words, the hand blown glass pipes come with much more character. A large number of the professional smokers are of the opinion that glass pipes get more and more beautiful as they age. Owing to the fact that these pipes are transparent, regular use makes them more and more ‘smokier’.
The taste is another great benefit that comes with the hand blown glass pipes; this benefit is however very subjective. It depends on the person using the pipe. There are those who say that attest to the wooden pipes and metal pipes [producing a much better taste] but the popularity that glass pipes enjoy has greatly been attributed to the taste that they produce for the average user. This is mainly due to the fact that with the glass you get to enjoy the pure flavor of the smoke without any impurities in the pipe distorting the flavor, a pure flavor that is not in any way blended with additional flavor from the metal or wood pipes.
