Elev8 Glass 12 Tree Perc With Inline Perc
Today is a review on an Elev8 Foreign Artisan Glass water pipe. When I first look at this piece I am amazed at how clean it it. Then as I look closer I am very happy with how well all the parts are put together. Having the skill set to do bench and lathe work and am fully impressed with the two skill sets it takes to make this piece. The 12 tree perc is put together so well. Each arm is welded to the next for durability, the arms are cut perfectly at the same length for an extra clean look. I think the function on this is great, but I did get just a little water in my mouth when I filled it full and inhaled at a strong pull. At a normal pull this piece worked like a charm with no water, but I like to pull hard, just to test.
Very impressed by the overall quality, any one who purchased this would be very happy when they got it home to use. Being made by foreign artisans the affordability scored really high with us. If this was made in the USA it would cost $350-$500. The percs just take so so long to make and they are very difficult. I feel it takes a higly skilled blower to make a piece like this and a lot of tools are required to make it so clean. This piece comes in 4 colors which are, milky purple, milky green, green and fire green.
