Grav Labs, hands down are the masters of glass, scientific producers of glass if you will. A global reputation that is hard to surpass. Built to last, highly functional and as gorgeous as glass can get. Those in the know only and always use Grav glass.
Sometimes a one-hitter is all you need. Easy to pack, use and transport. The 12mm Grav Taster with Silicone Skin may be the best one-hitter I have seen in a while. Firstly, as this is Grav you know that only the highest quality glass is used. I’m holding one right now and the glass (13mm tubing) has the look and smooth feel of a quality pipe. The silicone skin adds to the aesthetic appeal and is easily removable for cleaning.
The length of the glass measures in at 7.5cms but that’s minus the silicone skin which sits partially around the glass. This skin serves 2 purposes – to act as a shock absorber and as a cap for when you pre-load your pipe. The silicone skin is quite thick and should do quite a good job of protecting the glass whilst still allowing you to see within. One end of the easily removable skin acts as a cap whilst the other end tapers to an ergonomic mouthpiece. This mouthpiece is pinched and acts as an effective ash catcher.
Total measurement including silicone skin = 10cms.
To use: Remove the silicone cap from the end of the taster when you are ready to load. 2 loading options are available; either hold the taster with the mouthpiece face down and place your material directly within by hand or with the mouthpiece facing up you can gently push down the taster into your material (chopped/ground up). Twist from side to side till filled. Replace the cap for later use or light.
To clean: Completely remove the silicone skin and wash in warm soapy. You may do the same with the glass portion or use Isopropyl Alcohol for stubborn gunk. Allow to dry/evaporate and reassemble. A further method to consider (especially if you are very lazy!) is the Resremover pouch – simply add water to the contents of the pouch and place your pipe (silicone-less of course!) within. Shake and wait before rinsing and allowing to dry. You can reuse the pouch over and over again for chemical free cleaning.
