Despite what their name might suggest, these pipes aren't just for Sherlock Holmes. While the standing Sherlock pipe is synonymous with the character and mostly associated with wise old grandfatherly types, they provide more than just a hipster smoking experience.
Instead of being a straight shot to the mouthpiece, like spoons or steamrollers, the curved mouthpiece of the Sherlock pipe provides a longer path for the smoke to travel and thus creates a smoother hit.
Even if you choose a Sherlock for the unique look, you’ll quickly realize why these are a fan favorite by young and old alike! Many brands and glassblowers such as GRAV, Empire Glassworks, and more have taken advantage of this uniquely styled Sherlock design to create some fascinating pieces. SMOKEA® is proud to offer a wide selection of the best Sherlock smoking pipes on the market in a variety of materials including wood, glass, and metal.
Take it from us that the Sherlock pipe can be a lot of fun to smoke, and you may just have to try it yourself to see if you like it! Luckily, many Sherlocks are relatively inexpensive, so you’re sure to find one in your price range. For the best Sherlocks on the market at prices you can’t find anywhere else, be sure to stick with SMOKEA®!
Sherlocks are inspired by the classic pipe smoked by famed, fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. A Sherlock smoking pipe has a distinct saxophone shape with a medium-to-large bowl that wraps around to a curved mouthpiece.
A bubbler is a pipe that uses bubbles to filter the smoke. They’re smaller than a typical bong and are designed to fit in the hand while being smoked. While some Sherlocks can be bubblers, not all bubblers are Sherlocks.
Sherlocks can be cleaned similarly to standard bongs and pipes. You’ll want to use an alcohol solution or isopropyl alcohol on its own. The difference is that you’ll want to use a pipe cleaner or a poker soaked in alcohol to get in the hard-to-reach crevices of your Sherlock bong. After that, let the pipe sit for 24 hours to dry and enjoy!
