The Süka pipe is 7Pipe’s fifth design since 2007.
This radical design is based on the classic Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) shape, which we found very very interesting when adapted to a smoking pipe. The function and use is not as obvious as our world famous Twisty design, with its obvious analogy to the cigar. But trust us when we say that the new loading function is absolutely unique, simple, useful, and enchanting. The Suka pipe also borrows from the early computer mouse and its rolling trackball.
We will introduce many of the design elements to you over time or you may discover them yourself.
The body of the pipe is carved from a solid cylinder of aircraft aluminum using CNC (Computer Numerical Control). This manufacturing method makes the pipe as beautiful inside as it is outside.
The glass bowl is handcrafted in quartz, not the typical borosilicate; this makes the Suka pipe suitable for dabbing in a pinch.
And the platinum-cured silicone ball is the most unique and important component of the Suka; it is the heart of this pipe. The rolling trackball allows the revolutionary loading function unique to this pipe. It also holds the quartz ball safely within and also holds the cap (or nickel, if you lose your cap.) The ball also conveys the smoke to the UFO lower body, so it is integral to the smoke path. The softness of the silicone also allows you to pop out the cap or bowl with a push from the bottom.
All in all, this pipe will be your next companion on a beach trip, camping, hiking, or fishing trip. It holds several grams inside it's body, or you can also load a single bowl from the top. It's classic smooth shape fits into any pocket, purse, or bag.
To turn your Suka pipe into a UFO, take the quartz bowl out and turn it upside down so that it becomes a clear cockpit. Then put the alien inside the cockpit.
Protect your Suka with a zipper case, get some aliens to turn your Suka into a UFO collectible, or get a parts kit to keep your suka pipe functioning.
