FAQ

Is it for tobacco use only?

Why, of course it is.

 

Is it a vape?

No, it is not a vape. Flutes handpipes are combustion smoking devices.

 

How is it more discreet than other handpipes or bowl attachments?

Our smokefree handpipes completely eliminate sidestream smoke by instantly sealing the burning bowl and fresh air floods the inside of the pipe with a twist.


For a truly smokefree session, where exhale smoke is also filtered, use a Flutes smokefree handpipe alongside a smokefree filter like Philter Labs, Sploofy, SmokeBuddy, or SmokeTrap.

 

How much can it hold?

The Classic Cartridge holds .35 grams of material and an expanded cartridge is in the works that will hold .5 grams of material. 

 

How do I pack it?

  1. Disassemble the handpipe by pulling the cartridge out of the cap.
  2. Identify the burn chamber (the one furthest from the mouthpiece)
  3. Using the Tamping Tool, loosely scoop and pack the material into the burn chamber
  4. VERY IMPORTANT: Ensure that the material is evenly distributed and not packed to tightly for a good burn 
  5. Reassemble the handpipe by sliding the packed cartridge into the cap.

What solvents should I use to clean it?

You can clean your handpipe with isopropyl alcohol or any other household-safe solvents. Just keep in mind that many are flammable. You can use the Tamping Tool (included in all Flutes kits or separately) placed drill-up in the silicon sleeve then fill with ISO, toilet paper wads, Q-tips, disassemble and wipe...
