A Gandalf style pipe owes it’s title to Tolkien’s favorite Wizard of the same name. The shape of a Gandalf pipe is longer than most pipes with a slightly upward arched neck and a bowl kicked back towards the smoker to provide line of sight observation into the bowl.
The popularity of this shape is not all celebrity. Tolkien himself posed with several pipes of this shape while writing his Opus. The upward arch of the neck redirects the flow of smoke into the side of the glass where detritus sticks yielding a cleaner smoke. The length of this shape also provides ample time to cool significantly yielding an ambient temperature pull. Together, this pipe offers a mellow and cool pull every time.
Our Gandalf Glass Pipe doesn’t require you to have a beard, but it sure looks good with one. Functionally, the model took a while to perfect back in 2002, torches were not as well designed and glass was more brittle, so, the model really took some doing to get the gather and then the stretch to expand uniformly. I designed the Gandalf Pipe as a throwback to the classic pipe style that I fell in love with after LOTR debutted in 2001. This piece has a long drop, which gives extra cooling space for your smoke. Close your eyes, flick your lighter, and light up like you’re in the Shire. Update 2018: I’m listening. We had 3 requests for a flat spot during a single week. I’ve resisted this request as a purist, however, the smoker that I am recognized: It needed a flat spot. All Gandalf Pipes are now made with Flat Spots so they don’t roll on their side.

The Gandalf Ash Catcher Magnet Bowl Glass Pipe is so named because of the overall shape and the indented mouthpiece. One of many Chameleon Glass innovations, first available in early 2002, this was one of the first and is still a very popular piece! By indenting the mouthpiece, anything heavier than air (ash, particulate or any solids) is pulled down by the natural effect of gravity, misses the mouthpiece hole and is deflected further downward to collect at the base of the indent. Ever done archery? Imagine a bow in your hand and an arrow ready to shoot. You have two targets. One is a funnel with the hole pointing away from you, the other has a funnel pointing at you. If you shoot at the target pointing away from you, your arrow will always be a bullseye as the arrow is deflected from the sides of the funnel and into the hole. If you shoot at the funnel pointed towards you, you'd better be pretty good, because unless your arrow is aimed at and goes directly through the whole, your arrow will hit the side of the funnel and be deflected AWAY. The Ash Catcher Glass Pipe operates in the same way, deflecting the ash AWAY from the hole. Then, add the long, sweeping shape of our Gandalf Glass Pipe to an already awesomely functional mouthpiece. No, a Gandalf doesn't require you to have a beard, but it sure looks good with one! The Gandalf Ash Catcher Glass Pipe is designed as a throwback to the classic pipe style, this piece has a long drop, which gives a little extra cooling space for your smoke. Close your eyes, flick your lighter, and light up like you're in the Shire. Simple? Yes. And some of the best new innovations are just that, simple, and yet they make a world of difference. Try one of the Ash Catcher Glass Pipes and you'll never own another pipe without an indented mouthpiece. Hand Made in the USA$60.00

The Rainbow Gandalf Glass Pipe came to me as I was watching TV with my kids. Dramarama was going to commercial, and I was going to the bathroom (equipped with a super sucker vent fan for my puffing pleasures) when a Skittles commercial popped up. As I rounded the corner of the couch, and, Munchifried as I was, I stopped to watch the tagline '..Taste the Rainbow..' and this awesome colorful mini Gandalf shot out of a cloud! Well, it wasn't ACTUALLY a mini Gandalf, turns out on further inspection (love that rewind on the DVR) it was a rainbow, but, Dayummm, sure looked like a gandalf to me (Surprise). So, a text to myself (so I would remember) and next day in the shop, the Rainbow Gandalf Glass Pipe was born. Hand Made in USA$52.00
