The famous 'Proto Pipe' was already a very well designed & engineered brass smoking pipe, in various formats. With this version comes a removable tar trap plug that acts a bowl bottom and smoke passage way, beneath the combustion chamber. This cools the smoke and significantly increases the ease with which this Proto Pipe maybe cleaned. As standard, the Proto Pipe comes with a built in cleaning stick and storage chamber for your favourite herb. For hygiene, the intake mouth-piece comes with a replaceable silicone cover and as on the original, it has a slide over lid, to snub out.
