Raw Natural Wooden Pipe
RAW Natural Pipe is made from hand carved Bubinga wood. This wood is world famous amongst musicians for its use on many exclusive instruments. Bubinga is used as the shell of high end drum kits including my personal favorite used by Charlie Watts. It’s also used on harps, luthiers and bass guitars because of its hardness, unique patterns and well-rounded sound.
This is a truly RAWesome wood! The RAW Natural Pipe also comes with a fully removable plastic mouthpiece, a canvas carrying pouch and a pre-loaded Corleone smoking filter.
RAW themselves suggests breaking the pipe in with a bit of honey or pipe sweetener until it becomes your seasoned favorite. To "break it in" simply means to get the wood accustomed to the heat of the glowing tobacco in the bowl. As you gradually build up a carbon layer the pipe will adjust itself. Some burning of the surface of the Zen wooden pipe is natural. You can keep this to a minimum by puffing and dragging carefully and gently for the first few dozen fills.
