The Helix glass pipe is one of the most iconic and well-known pipes on the market. It all started in the 1990s when glass artist Boxfan was an apprentice to the world-famous Bob Snodgrass. As Boxfan continued to improve his skills, the signature Helix design developed a cult-like following in the mid-2000s. Boxfan dedicated himself to Helix pipes and has created the American Helix brand. By 2010, the Helix became the #1 selling glass pipe on the market.
So why is Helix so popular? The Helix glass pipe creates an extremely unique swirling tornado action with the smoke that allows it to cool before inhalation (plus it just looks awesome). The signature Venturi chamber causes the swirling action of the smoke and therefore the immediate filtration before your smoke even reaches the percolator.
This swirling action and filtration results in smooth, cool hits. The design of these pipes enhances your smoking experience while cutting down on waste. So if you want a high-quality pipe that gives you the ultimate smoke session—not to mention looks cool—a Helix is for you.
American Helix originally created the Helix Classic spoon hand pipe but has since expanded the product line to include different sized spoons, chillums, and even carb caps. Several other Helix designs such as Helix bongs are available through GRAV (formerly Grav Labs) as well. If you're looking for a standout pipe with the best functionality, grab yourself a Helix—we promise it won’t disappoint you.
