Made locally in Vancouver British Columbia, the Hi-Guy glass Vapor Genie is a must for any glass pipe and vaporizer connoisseur. Glass blown portable Vapor Genie uses the same ceramic heat core design as the original Vapor Genie, but with glass construction that is easy to clean and smooth the use. Heat Core is guaranteed for life. Uses a lighter and is completely portable. For best results, use with a wick system like beeline, irie twine, or trippy string.
Glass VGs have a stainless steel screen made of 316 stainless steel. The 316 stainless alloy is the most inert and chemically stable alloy of stainless steel.
One nice thing about the glass VGs is that the bowl is transparent and allows you to watch the vaporization process. You can actually see your herbs turning darker brown as they are vaporized. The sherlock shape of Glass Pipe VG puts the bowl slightly below eye-level. The Glass VGs have a screen-retaining feature, so the screen will not fall out when the pipe is inverted.
Maintenance: Glass VGs can be cleaned using alcohol+salt, hot soapy water, or conventional glass pipe cleaning products. Solvents, alcohol or soap will not damage the ceramic filter material, so feel free to clean the top by soaking. Do NOT use a torch lighter with the glass VGs because torch lighters tend to cause cracks in the glass.
The Glass VG is about 7 inches long and about 4 inches tall. It is made of thick-wall (2.5 mm wall) clear borosilicate glass from Schott Glass of Germany. Wall thickness varies from 2.5 - 5 mm, so it is very durable. It sits stably upright on a flat surface, so loading the bowl is easy. The ceramic filter is exactly the same as the filter used in the other VaporGenie pipes (all VaporGenie pipes use exactly the same ceramic filter material). The filter assembly top and bowl attach by a ground glass joint. The ceramic flame filter is held in place by a stainless steel retaining wire.
The bowl in the glass VaporGenie is larger (about 50% deeper) than the bowl of the classic VG pipes. Bowl is about the same size as the bowl of the handcarved (spiral and smooth) pipes. Glass tends to absorb more heat than wood, so the pipe and filter of the glass VaporGenie will become hotter than the classic or handcarved pipes (about as hot as the metal bowl of the classic VG pipe). Even with heavy use, the pipe will remain cool enough to touch, but the bowl area may become too hot to touch. It will not burn you, though.
