SELLER’S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Clear Gloint. Another TokinTops exclusive and my very first glass design! This is the glass joint, known as the “Gloint”. Comes in three designs: Clear, Frosted, and Transparent Green. They all milk up very nicely and look like perfect fat rolled up J’s! Each piece has wrapped “roll” marks and two little stubs on the bottom to prevent it from rolling around. Good size carb hole for quality air control, it hits like a standard glass dry pipe. 8 inches in length and 4 inches in diameter. Weighs a solid 3 ounces. Only $28.40. Made In The USA.

 

SMOKING WITH STYLE REVIEW

Prior to receiving this package, I had never heard of a Gloint and for good reason; it’s an original design/creation. However, right away, it was apparent that Gloint was short for glass joint because, well… it’s a glass pipe in the shape of a joint. It hits great and has an all around smooth quality in both texture and use. This is rather unsual because most “gimmick” pieces are only concerned with look and not function. In this case, both style and smokeability are achieved in equal proportions.


OVERALL EVALUATION/ RECOMMENDATION

I have done numerous promotions with Tokin’ Tara at TokinTops.com and I can easily recommend any of her items as they are priced fairly and made well. While you are on her site, be sure to check out the clothing line as well. I personal own one of her T-shirts and wear it on weekends when I want to promote 420 on the sly.

I would “highly” recommend stopping by Tara’s website and checking out her entire collection.

Items Provided by: Ed’s Tote’N Tokes
Giveaway Item: CLOSED – Congrats to Justin! Prize: Hawaiian Mango Dugout w/ accessories.

Stoner Score: 4 out of 5 pot leaves!

 

GIVEAWAY ITEM!

An item or two from Ed’s Tote’N Tokes (to be announced shortly) can be yours for FREE! Everybody who replies to this blog post (below) will be entered into a drawing to win! (Must be 18 years of age or older to win.)

 

SELLER’S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In my package for review there were a variety of different items. I will be focusing on the wood pieces ohly for the sake of this review. The wooden items provided were as follows:

California Redwood Lace Burl Dougout. These dougouts are from the most choice pieces of California Redwood. This wood is actually Redwood Burl which gives it very distinctive markings that can’t be found in normal woods.

Asian Amboyna Burl Toke. A rare, exotic hardwood that grows in southeast Asia and has a fragrant aroma. Amboyna can vary in color from yellow to golden brown to red, and is generally considered excellent for both turning and finishing.

South American Purpleheart Bat. As the name implies, the heartwood of Purpleheart is a rich, exotic purple. When initially harvested, it is a dark brown but quickly alters to the beautiful dark purple it is known for.

 

SMOKING WITH STYLE REVIEW

Let’s take a moment to address the quality of these pieces in general:

Look. If you are a fan of handcrafted pipes and dugouts made from top-quality woods, look no further. Each of the pieces described above is more beautiful than the next. I was especially impressed by the natural lace design on the dugout. I have owned a number of such devices throughout the years, but never have I had the pleasure of one made from such fine materials and attention to detail. The toke and bat were no exceptions. Each is made from a different type of high-quality wood and both provide a unique opportunity around which conversations can/will be initiated.

Smokeability. As expected, the pipes both smoke very well. They are simple in design and airtight.

Functionality. I found all of the review pieces to be extremely functional and practical. They are not the type of pieces you’d take to a party where they might possibly ”turn up missing,” but they are perfect for solo and/or small sessions.

The only hiccup I found was in the dugout. When placed it metal side down into the dugout, the bat seems to “slip” a little from time to time. I’m being super picky in this instance because it is the ONLY flaw I found in an otherwise perfect piece. :)

Price. If you want “cheap,” look elsewhere. While these pieces seem to be priced well for their quality, they may be cost prohibitive for those with little to no dispensable cash. That said, you often get what you pay for. If you want great handcrafted pieces for your collection, you won’t mind spending the extra dough for such great products.


OVERALL EVALUATION/ RECOMMENDATION

Overall, the pieces provided by Ed’s Tote’N Tokes exceeded my expectations. I didn’t think the quality of the wood would make such a huge difference in otherwise typical pieces, but there is simply no comparing these products to off-the-shelf models.

I would “highly” recommend stopping by Ed’s website and checking out his entire collection.

OCB ROLLING PAPERS REVIEW

Friday , April 20th, 2012 | Posted By: Bud S. Moker, Th.C.

Product: OCB Rolling Papers
Item Provided by: Vanilla LA
Giveaway Item: CLOSED – Everybody who posted won a pack of OCB Rolling Papers!

Stoner Score: 5 out of 5 pot leaves!

 

GIVEAWAY ITEM!

Happy 4/20 from Smoking With Style and OCB. Enter to win a pack of OCB rolling papers. *Everybody who replies to/comments on this blog post (below) will be automatically entered into the giveaway.

*Open only to continental U.S. residents. Must be 18 years or older to enter. Limited supply.”

 

SELLER’S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

“With over 100 years of experience, OCB has perfected the papermaking process: using only the best raw materials and expert craftsmen. OCB papers are recognized for their undeniable edge in quality… Each booklet comes with pre-cut, ink-free filters. It is an all-in-one dream…”

 

SMOKING WITH STYLE REVIEW

This was a very simple product to review, so let’s just break down the basics:

Packaging. The packaging of these papers was very well thought out. These OCB booklets contain an equal number of filters and rolling papers. On top of this, the filters are pre-cut (perforated) and actually diagram very simple joint-rolling steps. It’s obviously not ”rocket surgery” to make a filter out of cigarette pack (or chewing gum packaging) for example, but it’s quite nice to have them built in.

Smokeability. I’m sad to admit that it’s been at least a year since I rolled my last joint… that is, prior to receiving these OCB papers in the mail. The only fair way to test a product is by trying it, right? So, I rolled up my first joint since 2011 using the medium-sized premium papers. The result was (drum roll please) very pleasant indeed. Smooth taste, even-burning, and surprisingly resistant to tears considering the thinness of the paper.

Functionality. When the package which contained these papers arrived, I did not expect to find a big difference between these rolling papers and any other. However once I discovered the attached filters, I was intrigued. I became “sold” only when I found the packaging simple to use: Rolling papers on one side and filters on the other (the remaining filters fold up and store away).


OVERALL EVALUATION/ RECOMMENDATION

I had forgotten how nice it was to smoke a joint. Thanks to Vanilla LA and OCB rollers for sending me over a bunch of samples to try. I sit here medicated as I type this review and I’m looking forward to trying the rest of the samples.

I gave these papers a maximum 5 out of 5 pot leaves’ rating and I recommend them for every joint-rolling, marijuana-smoking, “cool head” out there.


PROMOTIONAL VIDEO

Below you’ll find a promo video for this product posted by OCBrollers called “Grandma Knows Best”.

CERAMIC FACE PIPE REVIEW

Wednesday , April 4th, 2012 | Posted By: Bud S. Moker, Th.C.

Product: Ceramic Face Pipe
Item Provided by: Online Head Shop
Giveaway Item: CLOSED – Congratulations to our winner “trentspentrent”!

Stoner Score: 4 out of 5 pot leaves!

 

GIVEAWAY ITEM!

This item, donated by SmokeWire.com, can be yours for FREE! Everybody who replies to this blog post (below) will be entered into a drawing to win this pipe! (Must be 18 years of age or older to win.)

 

SELLER’S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

“The most beautiful Ceramic pipe in our new collection. Awesome taste while smoking. Amazing look! For every collector a must have piece!”

 

SMOKING WITH STYLE REVIEW

Let’s take a moment to address a few different aspects of this pipe:

Look. As you can see in the photos above, this ceramic pipe is really trippy due to the amazing detail and color. This pipe appears to be a bearded man’s head which stands on a foot with an exposed big toe. The coloring of the product (at least the one sent to me) is a combination of brown, beige, and red.

Smokeability. This pipe smokes extremely well. The ear of the man becomes the pipe’s bowl when titled on its side and the mouthpiece is located on the bottom of his beard. There is also a carb located on the chamber which leads into his foot. It appears that the entire pipe is hollow which allows the smoke to collect inside the length of the pipe until the carb is released (known as a barrel stem pipe). When released, this pipe delivers a huge yet smooth hit.

Functionality. This pipe takes a few sessions to master due to its unique shape. However, once you develop a sense of how to best hold him, it quickly becomes a very pleasant and “stoney” smoking experience. He even stands up on his own and has cleats on the very bottom of his foot to keep him from sliding around. Don’t be mistaken… this is a LARGE pipe. If you need to hide your smoking devices from friends or family consinder yourself warned. This pipe will not easily fit in your pocket! ;)

Price. As of the date of this post, this pipe is listed for $66.00. While this cost may be prohibitive for some stoners, it is worth every penny for the discerning pipe collector.


OVERALL EVALUATION/ RECOMMENDATION

Overall, the Ceramic Face Pipe from SmokeWire.com is a really well made and super creative product.

I would “highly” recommend it for every employed stoner who must have the best of the best in his/her collection.
