Gandalf Natural Perc Glass Bubbler Water Pipe

We’ve been selling Gandalfs ever since and have several colors to choose from and even a few different functional designs like our Hash, Ash Catcher and Mag Tech editions. By chance, I noticed some unusual behavior of water while I was cleaning mine. Enough water was left in the pipe after a rinse that airflow was blocked. If I inhaled through the pipe, the water always returned to block the airflow, which is how a Natural Percolator works.
Problem was, the surface tension of water caused it to climb (even the steep neck of a Gandalf) and end up in my mouth. Yuck. I broke out my old fluid dynamics book and then cross referenced it against my Scientific Apparatus books. I found that a simple in line bubble would break the surface tension and cause the water to fall back against gravity into the air flow. Call me Bandobras.
Close your eyes, flick your lighter, and light up like you’re in the Shire.

The Gandalf Natural Perc Glass Bubbler Water Pipe is not only a stylish accessory that complements your look (beard or not), but it also boasts impressive functionality. The design process was a challenge, considering the limitations of torches and fragile glass in 2002, but we persevered to achieve a uniform expansion and the perfect gather. Inspired by the classic pipe style that captured my heart after the release of LOTR, the Gandalf Glass Pipe pays homage to its roots while offering a fresh take on the venerated design. Our extensive collection includes various colors and functional editions like Hash, Ash Catcher, and Mag Tech.
During cleaning, I stumbled upon an intriguing water behavior issue where leftover water would obstruct the airflow. To tackle this, I delved into fluid dynamics and Scientific Apparatus books and discovered that incorporating a simple in-line bubble could break the water’s surface tension, allowing it to fall back into the airflow against gravity.
