Glass pipes have been the favorite since they became popular during the 1960s. There has been little innovation for the last fifty years. However, HØJ has shattered the mold with its modern, sleek design. Here’s our review of the 2021 Most Innovative Pipe, HØJ KØL Pipe.
Background On the Company, HØJ
HØJ is a Danish word for high. The word “high” is their motto. They aim to create higher quality products, higher production standards, and higher experiences. And well, their products are used to get high. HØJ is a company based out of London, England. However, they have distribution in the United States for speedy shipping to North America. HØJ has two main products in their collection—the KLIP grinder and the KØL pipe. Both products come in standard and mini sizes.
2021 Most Innovative Pipe — KØL
The KØL, pronounced kow-l, has a sleek, Danish, ergonomic design. The exterior design of the pipe was inspired by the scales of a Marko shark. The pipe is made with anodized, recycled aluminum. Anodizing is an electrochemical process used to alter the exterior finish of the metal. According to the Aluminum Anodizers Council, the process is used to make the metal more decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish. The KØL has a matte black finish so it won’t slip out of your hands. However, it would be okay if it slipped out of your hands since it’s not made out of glass.
Magnetic Pipe Makes Cleaning Easy
One of the most innovative features of the KØL is the magnetic body. The interior of the pipe has hidden magnets that securely hold the two-piece pipe together. The pieces never slip off unintentionally. Since the pipe is easily opened, it makes cleaning super simple and hassle-free. Typically, Cleaning glass bowls can be messy and cumbersome. You could stain your home or clothing with smelly, brown juice from the pipe.
It’s easy to clean the KØL pipe. Snap the pipe open. Then give it a wipe with a paper towel. Or you can wash it similar to doing dishes in the kitchen sink. If the easy cleaning isn’t enough, it’s fun to fidget with it and hear the metal pieces click back together.
Thermo-Conductive and Vortex Cooling Effect
The second most innovative feature is the maze within the pipe. When you take a hit, the smoke travels through the interior maze. The smoke gets cooled down along the way. It gives you a smoother smoke similar to a hit from a bong. Definitely worth a try if you don’t like the harshness of smoking from a traditional pipe.
What’s the Difference Between the Standard Size Versus Mini KØL?
The KØL and KØL Mini sizes have the same filter and bowl size. The only difference is a longer chamber. However, the longer chamber provides a greater cooling effect. The KØL measures 150 millimeters / 5.9 inches in length. The KØL Mini pipe has a length of 113 millimeters / 4.4 inches. The standard size costs $100. However, if you’re on a budget, get the KØL Mini for $80.
The Perfect Filters
One of the biggest disappointments with glass bowls is the lack of a screen. A screen or filter prevents the weed from being pulled or falling into the chamber of the bowl while inhaling. The KØL screens have tiny pinholes. Therefore, the finest grounds will not fall through the holes. The screens are fully washable. KØL pipes come with two extra screens. However, if you need more, the filters are sold separately on HØJ’s website.
The filters are nice a wide. You can evenly burn your weed. Rather than repeatedly burning the top layer of charred weed. The filters measure 0.35 inches in diameter. They are made out of titanium-coated stainless steel. The filters can withstand high temperatures of 600°C. Therefore, turn up the heat!
In conclusion, the KØL was carefully researched and develop. In addition, they thought of all aspects of the smoking experience. HØJ has paid close attention to all the details. From the concept, material, design, and packaging. Do yourself a favor and try an HØJ KØL Pipe. Learn more at hoj.life.
