Should You Buy a K.Haring Water Pipe?
Anyone who tries a glass water pipe immediately wants one, with the weight and robustness of the pipe shining through.
Compared to acrylic, there really is no comparison. Like the weight of a whiskey glass compared to a plastic cup in hand, glass delivers an extravagant smoking experience that oozes quality and sophistication.
In the case of K.Haring water pipes, that tactile quality is enhanced even further with thick Borosilicate glass and hand-finished artwork. Smoking with a K. Haring water pipe is as much of an upgrade over a regular glass pipe as glass is to plastic!
A delightful smoking experience
Sometimes, you want a quick hit, and acrylic will do. Other times, you want to enjoy the smoking experience, savouring every draw. K. Haring water smoking pipes deliver the latter, making them ideal for your finest herbs and tobacco.
Inspired by the late Keith Haring’s pop art, K. Haring water pipes are blown from borosilicate glass (the highest quality for glass pipes) and boast several features that improve the smoking experience for better delivery and taste.
The pipe is designed for smokers, with a removable diffuser, spacious bowl and an airtight glass ground connection. There’s a 7-slit percolator that produces fine bubbles to aerate the smoke to purify it and a fat-lipped mouthpiece.
Here’s a quick feature run-down of the glass water pipe:
- Borosilicate glass
- 7-slit percolator
- Large bowl
- Removable diffuser
- Wide and sturdy base
- Fat-lipped mouthpiece
- Ice catcher and splashguard
These features would make any glass pipe a premium product at face value, but Keith Haring’s water pipes are also works of art.
A water pipe that’s also art
If you smoke herbs and tobacco and you adore pop art, your prayers have been answered with Keith Haring’s water pipes.
In the 1980s, Keith Haring was the face of pop culture whose pop art emerged from the graffiti-laden streets of New York. His art is instantly recognisable with thick black lines and cartoon-like forms, with splashes of colour and geometry.
When you buy a K. Haring water pipe, you are buying a piece of art. Each pipe is blown individually from thick borosilicate glass that withstands extreme heat, with hand-applied designs that replicate some of Haring’s most iconic pop art.
A variety of designs are available, with the neck and base hosting printed art. Each piece is completed with Haring’s signature, so they wouldn’t look out of place in an art gallery. Few other water pipes offer such beauty and prestige.
K.Haring - worth it?
There’s no denying that K.Haring water pipes are relatively expensive compared to generic glass pipes, but the quality difference is night and day.
The key difference is that K.Haring pipes are designed for smokers, while other glass artisan pipes prioritise form over function. By incorporating K.Haring artwork into the glass, the pipes look incredible and smoke as good as they look.
From borosilicate glass that is chemically inert to handy features like removable downstream stems and splash guards, K.Haring pipes have everything you could want, and they look the part. What’s not to love?
