Silver Palm Leaf
silver palm leaf tobacco smoker for when you're out on the town, hanging out at
the latest, hippest bars. You reach for your special herbal tobacco blend...
what are you going to smoke it in?
Palm Leaf has got to be one of the most eye-catching hand pipes I've seen in a
while. Imagine a metal slab about the dimensions of a credit card, less than a
quarter-inch thick. On top, you have a raised ring that forms the edges of the
bowl, making for a surprisingly capacious combustion chamber. Inside, you have a
series of channels cut into the metal to guide the smoke from the bowl to your
mouth along a meandering and cooling path. The pipe's bottom is actually a thin
stainless steel plate, held on by magnets -- it pops out with a fingernail
inserted into a notch on one end, for complete access to any internal surfaces
that require cleaning. Indeed, the SPL is one slick mofo, one of the few hand
pipes I've seen that actually shows signs of creative engineering. It's
guaranteed to grab attention and compliments.

So how does
the silver palm leaf smoke? Fairly well. The aforementioned channels, in
combination with the metallic nature of the pipe, give the smoke a surprisingly
long (for the pipe's size) travel path, along a highly heat-conductive material.
Unlike most wooden pipes, you'll hardly get that hot scratch on the back of your
Silver Palm Leaf excels is in cleaning. The pipe easily disassembles into two
pieces without the need of tools, and any internal surface which might get dirty
or clogged is completely exposed for a thorough swabbing. This is the only pipe
I've ever seen that you can return to its pristine, new condition, and it allows
you to do so without much fuss or complication.
