In this article, we are going to provide in-depth product knowledge on three unique hand pipes that PYPTEK is known for; The PYPTEK Nano Chillum, PYPTEK Pocket Pipe, PYPTEK Titan Pipe, and PYPTEK Dreamroller.
First, it’s important to know a little bit about the maker of the Prometheus Pipe line, PYPTEK.
PYPTEK takes pride in crafting all their hand pipes locally in Denver, Colorado. PYPTEK uses a combination of state of the art 3D printers, old fashioned metal working, and real life glass blowers to create all the parts and pieces that make up their highly-engineered line of Prometheus Pipes. This means that every PYPTEK Pipe is a little bit unique, and is built with love by an entire team of craftsmen and engineers before it gets to you.
The name Prometheus comes from ancient Greek mythology. Prometheus was a Titan god of forethought and was said to have crafted the first man from clay. Prometheus stole fire and bestowed it upon man. Zeus was not very happy about this and chained Prometheus to a cliff where each day his heart was eaten out by a vulture. Although Prometheus was not very popular amongst the immortals, he was recognized and honored by all of humanity for providing them with fire. Crazy, right?
Now, let’s get into the features and technology used to create the Prometheus pipes.
Aircraft Grade Aluminum
Aircraft grade aluminum protects all three of the Prometheus Pipes (Nano, Pocket, and Titan). PYPTEK uses the aluminum alloy 6061-T6 to encase the glass components for each of these pipes. Now, this is not like the aluminum that you imagine a soda can is made of. This aluminum is much harder, and less malleable creating a casing for your hand pipe that is virtually indestructible. Soda cans are made from a lower 3000 series aluminum alloy. The same aluminum used in Prometheus pipes can often be found on aircraft wings, sailboat masts, bicycle frames, air coolers, hydraulic piping, and many other applications.
To add an extra layer of protection to the already impressive 6061-T6 aluminum alloy found on the Prometheus hand pipes, PYPTEK uses anodization. The process of anodizing aluminum thickens the aluminum oxide film on the surface of the exoskeleton creating a hard, corrosion-resistant-layer that will protect your pipe against chipping and peeling. Additionally, anodizing allows PYPTEK to give the aluminum a long-lasting and colorful finish due to the anodized surfaces porous structure. The anodization process also makes smoking much cleaner and healthy. The anodization encourages heat to be distributed evenly throughout the entire pipe, virtually eliminating any chance of vapor release.
If you haven’t already noticed, the Prometheus Nano, Prometheus Pocket, and Prometheus Titan are all made with high quality as a number one ingredient. The core of each Prometheus pipe is handcrafted by professional glass artists in Colorado. This glass is specifically engineered to withstand insane quantities of heat and chemical corrosion. Believe it or not, all glass is not equal. There are five common types of glass: soda lime, lead glass, high silica, aluminosilicate, and borosilicate. PYPTEK uses high quality, borosilicate glass. This glass was developed to withstand large temperature variations and minimize expansion from heating and breaking from cooling. This is the same high-quality glass that Pyrex uses for their laboratory and kitchen glassware.
Strength & Durability
Above all, each Prometheus glass and metal pipe are crafted to be virtually indestructible. To test it out, PYPTEK has dropped their pipes off mountains and ran them over with trucks. To this day, they have not managed to break a single pipe. Prometheus hand pipes were engineered to withstand just about anything so you can take it on any adventure imaginable.
Prometheus Pipes Comparison
There are 3 Prometheus Pipes that we will be comparing: Prometheus Nano, Prometheus Pocket, and Prometheus Titan. Each of these hand pipes has the same technology that we have just mentioned above. What makes them different is primarily their shape, sizes and colors.
The Prometheus Nano Pipe is the world’s first one-hitter glass chillum with an aircraft grade anodized aluminum exoskeleton. The Prometheus Nano weighs roughly 4.5 oz and is 3.25” in length and 0.75” in height. This hand pipe made by PYPTEK comes in 5 colors: black, blue, green, purple, and red. Pick up your brand-new Prometheus Nano at WickiePipes.com for just $49.99.
The Prometheus Pocket Pipe consists of an ingenious two-piece design that screws into one another to form a single glass pipe that can fit in your pocket. The Prometheus Pocket weighs roughly 8 oz and is 4” in length and 1.75” in height. This hand pipe made by PYPTEK comes in 5 colors: black, blue, green, purple, and red. Pick up your brand-new Prometheus Pocket at WickiePipes.com for just $84.99.
The Prometheus Titan Pipe is a virtually indestructible massive pipe that consists of a two-piece design where the bowl piece and body screw into one another to form a single glass pipe with an aluminum exoskeleton. The Prometheus Titan weighs roughly 26 oz and is 6” in length and 2.75” in height. This hand pipe made by PYPTEK comes in 5 colors: black, blue, green, purple, and red. Pick up your brand-new Prometheus Titan for just $139.99.
