Looking for a glass Gandalf pipe? We can’t guarantee that you’ll be able to blow ships made of smoke like Gandalf does in the Lord of the Rings films, but we can guarantee an unbeatable user experience. Our Gandalf style pipes are similar to our popular Sherlocks, with a few stylistic differences.
What is a Gandalf Pipe?
Like the name suggests, a Gandalf smoking pipe is like the one made famous by Sir Ian McKellen’s wizard character in Lord of the Rings. The Gandalf pipe is the ultimate merger of form and function. It features a long, slender stem with a small but deep bowl. The long drop offers extra cooling space, providing a smooth and relaxing feel. It will become your go-to to pipe to kick back, relax, and share good times with close friends. The curved shape also provides an ash catching effect, stopping sparks and embers from reaching your mouth and throat.
Benefits of the Gandalf Pipe
All in all, a Gandalf pipe offers a smoking experience with unparalleled style (wizard beard not included). It comes with a number of advantages that set it apart from other pipes:
- Unique long-stemmed design that isn’t too brittle or fragile
- Small but deep bowl allows you to take bigger hits
- Regulated airflow to catch any ash you may pull through
- Design helps prevent ashes and sparks from reaching you

All told, a Sherlock Pipe offers you a lot of the same benefits in terms of water filtration that you’d get from a larger bong. However, it comes with a number of distinct advantages on top of that – ones that you absolutely shouldn’t ignore. Back to top.
