PipeSmith E-Pipes -Our pipes are built around the premise that
the e-pipe user should have less to worry about, and more to
enjoy. If you are apprehensive about using or keeping
your e-pipe with you on a day-to-day basis in whatever
environment you may find yourself - then you simply aren't
enjoying your e-pipe.
Each PipeSmith pipe is individually cut,
bored, shaped, surfaced/ carved, finished, and built by
hand. While the respective shaping of each pipe style
carries through, the free-hand shaping and surface carving of
each pipe creates a unique character and presence for your
specific pipe - no two PipeSmith pipes will ever be exactly
This process continues the quality,
durability, and uniqueness that is only available in a
The PipeSmith Statement -
When you carry a PipeSmith e-pipe, you are immediately
recognized as a member of an exclusive group of discerning
men who have sought out not only the "Toughest Pipe On The
Planet", but also a personal vaping device that is
synonymous with the commitment of service and support for
the life of the pipe.
"Piping Reinvented" goes hand-in-hand
with "PipeSmith - Toughest Pipes On The Planet"; The
hallmark of the user carrying one of the most unique and
exclusive platforms that are the ONLY purposefully
ergonomically designed pipe bodies in the world - and one
that carries a service/ repair package that is just as
Those who acquire one of these pipes will
be proud to have it/ those who haven't will want to - there
is only one pipe that is rugged, durable, reliable,
ergonomic, AND presentable all in the same package.
There's simply no other pipe available that carries what a
PipeSmith pipe does, and NONE with a service/ repair
warranty even remotely similar.
This subtle statement says that you are a
man who selects the best in everything that you do, and have
made no exception in your choice of e-pipe.
time - PipeSmith E-Pipes are
typically shipped within 48 hours of the pipe's completion and
the purchase being paid in full.
The relevant pages for the Legend Series
and Lodge Series
e-pipes are updated often with their respective estimated turn
around times, with exceptions for wood or hardware supply
delays beyond our control, weather, etc.
Turn around time from the date of reserving
your unique PipeSmith Limited
build until shipment typically runs around six (6) weeks to
eight (8) weeks or possibly more (depending on the individual
piece), though the time for each individual pipe may vary
somewhat based on particular options for the build, hurdles
encountered during a specific build process, revisions/
upgrades/ other changes implemented to improve the pipe
platform, my health, familial obligations, or other peripheral
influences that may affect the build time frame. Due to
the nature of how PipeSmith E-pipes are individually built, we
cannot guarantee specific ship dates or time frames for the
build, though we do strive to keep them within an attractive,
PipeSmith Limited E-Pipes are individually
hand-built in order to maintain both quality and uniqueness of
each PipeSmith pipe. To best service the rather high
demand for PipeSmith e-pipes and maintain these hallmarks,
build time frames are given as estimate only.
- Ordering your PipeSmith e-pipe
is a fairly straight-forward process;
PipeSmith Legend Series and Lodge Series
E-Pipes are direct order via the appropriate PayPal button on
their respective page.
To order a PipeSmith E-pipe featured as
"Available": Email or telephone regarding your
interests, and an invoice will be created and emailed to you
reflecting the purchase price of the pipe/ pipe package as
well as the relevant shipping fees. Once the invoice is
paid, the pipe/ pipe package will be shipped to you typically
within forty eight hours (make sure your shipping address is
If no PipeSmith "Limited" E-Pipes in which
you are interested are currently listed as "Available", you
can reserve your own build. Due to a fairly high demand,
this is how most PipeSmith Limited E-pipes are purchased,
since on the rare occasion there are pipes able to be listed
as "Available", it is just as rare that pipes remain listed as
"Available" for more than a couple of days. To reserve a build
opening for a pipe or pipe package to be built for you: Email
or telephone concerning your desired pipe or pipe package, and
we will discuss the relevant options that may best suit your
proposed project. Once these parameters are settled, an
invoice for total purchase price will be created and emailed
to you reflecting the specific designation of your pipe, as
well as the specifics of your build. Settling at least
two-thirds (66%) of this invoice will secure your build
reservation and begin your build process. As the pipe is
completed and ready for shipping, you will receive photographs
of your pipe, as well as an invoice for any remaining balance
of the pipe purchase (if applicable).

Yes, we have purchasing options for your
higher-end vape shop / email or give us a call.
Yes, we do ship Internationally - We
will supply the purchaser with the tracking information for
their package once shipped; purchaser is responsible for any
duties, fees, taxes, Customs delays, or any other encumbrances
encountered. Fused Protection -
e-cig/ e-pipe product; when firing the pipe, we are closing
the battery circuit (connecting the positive(+) and
negative(-) poles together) through a coil that is fed
liquid through means of wicking, thereby energizing this
coil in order to generate the heat necessary to create vapor
- and we're doing this in close proximity of our
faces. With all of the "protected" batteries now in
the e-cig market, some may believe that additional
protection is not necessary. Personally, I feel that
the additional effort to install additional protection that
sits idly by, passively doing it's job on each and every
vape you take from your e-pipe would be short-sighted to not
PipeSmith E-Pipe contains a resettable fuse that will
support a circuit load down to 0.5 ohm.
Should you ever encounter a short or other electrical issue,
the internal fuse will trip and interrupt the electrical
circuit. Since one side of the fuse actually provides
the (+) connection for the circuit, there is no chance (with
a properly inserted battery) that a short can exist within
the circuit before the fuse and defeat the protection.
Once the problem (faulty atomizer, trash in the 510
connector, etc.) is removed from the circuit, the fuse
re-sets, and you are ready to vape your e-pipe again.
The switch & connections are also
just as simple, and are capable of carrying far more
voltage/ amperage than required to fire your e-pipe. We also wanted to ensure, as much as
possible, that each e-pipe from PipeSmith is repairable with
the least amount of difficulty, special components or
The PipeSmith G5 Fire Kit comprises the
working internals of your e-pipe, and just as with the body of
your pipe - the fire kit components are hand-built, and each
kit is built and fitted to each individual pipe.
Once assembled and fitted to the pipe, the
Fire Kit is then tuned to the respective pipe to provide
smooth, trouble free, and reliable operation. Woods - The woods selected for PipeSmith E-Pipes are
chosen based on their durability, color(s), grain, and overall
character, while keeping in mind how a particular wood may age
and mature while being regularly handled. For
Legend Series and Lodge Series E-pipes, the bodies are built
from handsome Walnut - the wood that has been used for more
gun stocks around the world than any other, resulting in an
attractive and resilient pipe body, with a reasonable finished
weight. For the PipeSmith Limited e-pipe bodies, these
woods are chosen from different regions of the world, bringing
various visible and structural characteristics that creates a
very durable pipe that matures into a very unique, yet natural
Build Process -
The PipeSmith process is as important to
the finished pipe as is the respective wood chosen, and we
have devised this process to utilize the effects of our
location at 6,300' in elevation to settle the woods and
establish the unique character in our pipes. Your PipeSmith E-Pipe is completely
built, shaped, finished, and assembled by hand, one at a time,
to create for you a very unique personal vaping device that
you can be proud of for many years.
Each time the
blank is cut, bored, or shaped, it is given around three (3)
days to relax before subsequent steps are undertaken.
Once this time frame has passed and the wood shows that it is
ready, prior boring processes are re-traced to ensure proper
finished sizing, and the next step in the process is begun.
Once the blank has been appropriately sized
and bored, it is then rough shaped and left to sit again
before moving on to final shaping by hand-filing, any
surfacing present is carved by hand, then one more final
sanding to ensure everything is well blended before moving on
While this process is a bit more time
consumptive than other methods, the result is a unique
character brought out in the wood that will compliment your
pipe for the balance of it's life.
Finish -With the obvious exception of the Legend
Series e-pipe bodies, PipeSmith e-pipes are initially finished
with a Pipe Butter treatment -
our own proprietary all-natural wood finish developed
specifically by PipeSmith E-Pipes. This imparts
additional water resistance and protection for the surface of
your pipe, and allows the natural character of the wood to
contribute to the overall presence and personality of your
pipe in a subtle, natural matte appearance. We do not
apply polyurethanes to our pipes, because we feel it detracts
from the natural wood appearance, the natural maturing
richness of the wood, and the organic feel of the wood in your
hand as you hold your pipe. Why
only mechanical e-pipes? - Because they're pipes! The vast majority
of analog pipe smokers that switch to e-pipes are also looking
to simulate the organic experience of pipe smoking as closely
as possible, and having lights and computer-generated numbers
on a small screen on the pipe tends to poison that well.
In addition; we are "outdoors people" (we
are in Colorado, after all), and a purely mechanical firing
means that there is much less to go wrong with your PipeSmith
e-pipe when you're out enjoying the great playground that God
has given us.
We want you to use your pipe and enjoy it
wherever your day leads you, without the worry of when the
electronics will become finicky or fail.
Your PipeSmith E-Pipe is quite durable
and is meant to be used and enjoyed - not to sit on a shelf;
they are neither trinkets nor ornaments.
Should you encounter a problem with/ damage/ or
manage to break your e-pipe - give us a call or drop us an
email first. Because of how your pipe is constructed, it
is highly probable that I can walk you through corrective
measures quite easily. If we can't arrive at a
resolution to your issue via telephone, email, or text, then
we'll set up for you to mail the pipe back, I'll fix the
problem (if repairable) and mail the pipe back to you.
Yet another unique aspect of service and
support that sets PipeSmith apart from the rest of the field.
Should you have any additional questions,
feel free to telephone or email us, and we'll get you set up
with your own exclusive PipeSmith E-pipe.
