Cleaning & Care

How do I clean my pipe?

Like any passionate maker, we hope you care for your pipe like it's your baby. So, we like to suggest a durable carrying case to keep it sleek, shiny, and concealed. 
 Our Humboldt Pipe is comprised of 4 pieces: the bowl, the body, the spring, and the air flow adjusting screw. To prepare the pipe for cleaning simply remove the screw, being mindful that the spring may cause the bowl to shoot up, and place screw and spring securely nearby. We suggest in a dish where they cannot be lost.
To clean the pipe, separate the bowl from the body and place both pieces in a ziplock bag with hot water or rubbing alcohol. Let both pieces soak for 15-30 mins and run thru hot water or use the tool which came with pipe to run thru and get any residue out.

Note: Please do not use salt or any other harsh chemical as it could damage or corrode the premium metal surfaces.


Is smoking from metal safe?

Simply put, yes. Our pipes are all made of high quality USA Made Stainless Steel/Aluminum that are FDA food & aircraft approved for a clean finish & smoke.
In addition, there are no studies which confirm that smoking from premium grade metal is worse than smoking from any other materials,
Although shipped ready to use, we recommend once you get your pipe to give it a simple wash with some soap and water before initial smoke. Please also follow our cleaning instructions above for how to clean the pipe in the safest manner.


Will the pipe get hot?

The only burning that will happen is whats going into the pipe. Both our stainless steel and aluminum options will not get hot enough to cause any kind of significant heat transfer.
We do recommend you use a regular butane lighter (ex. Bic) or matches rather than a torch lighter to prevent excessive heating.


Why a metal pipe?

The Humboldt Pipe is a metal one-hitter designed for durability and sophistication. The metal pipe pulls a swift yet sultry drag of smoke while preserving the taste and experience of your favorite flower.
The Humboldt Pipe is crafted in Huntington Beach, California and goes through a rigid manual inspection to ensure it surpasses standards. The optimal design is delicate yet sleek, compact, and durable enough to join you through the highest ventures.
