All actiTube pipes are made of precious wood, which is neither varnished nor stained, and is treated only with vegetable oil. They are all made by hand in Germany, and are a pleasure to hold and behold. Thanks to the actiTube activated charcoal filter inside, all the Tune In pipes taste milder than conventional one-hitter pipes, since the smoke becomes cooler and feels less rough on the throat and lungs. That makes one-hit smoking easier, which helps some people to quit smoking tobacco. Briar wood is also set apart by its excellent durability. It has a fine grain and a very neutral taste. This type of wood has been used to make high-quality tobacco pipes since the beginning of the 19th century. Our Tune In briar wood pipe has a hygienic, elegant acrylic mouthpiece and its timeless shape is reminiscent of the Bauhaus design style.
