This pipe is super simple in its design. It's basically a coiled spring tube with a mouth piece and a bowl. this makes is very easy to use. You simply twist the bowl and mouthpiece onto the chamber (spring tube) and you are ready to go. When you are done smoking, the spring can be bent into a circle so that the mouthpiece fits nicely into the bowl for ease of storage/travel. These pipes come in an assortment of colors so each purchase is a pleasant surprise!
