If you’re a tenured professor who likes to live life in the fast lane, that traditional wood pipe you’ve been smoking probably doesn’t suit your style. But instead of giving up the habit, why not just upgrade your hardware? This drool-worthy carbon fiber alternative from PURISME is almost cool enough to make me want to take up smoking.
The pipe is actually made from a combination of straight grain bruyère wood and carbon fiber, but that latter ingredient is wrapped around the outside giving it that million dollar sports car finish. As a result the pipe weighs just 75g, and it’s also got a unique inverted design so you can set it down anywhere without it tipping over. As always looking cool doesn’t come cheap, but if you’ve got ~$2,500 (€1,890), a desire to take a few years off your life and the patience to wait 5 weeks, you can order one directly from PURISME.
