  • Patent number: 6148826
    Abstract: A device for smoking combustible materials includes a tubular body member constructed entirely of heat-resistant glass material. The device has an internal bore with an integrally formed venturi that separates the bore into a smoke chamber and a loading chamber. A method of forming the device includes providing a tubular body member constructed entirely from a heat-resistant glass material; forming a constricted passage in a bore of the tubular body member by applying heat to a predetermined location on the tubular body member until the glass material expands into the bore at the predetermined location; and smoothing the outer surface of the tubular body member at the predetermined location.

  • Patent number: 6041921
    Abstract: The invented apparatus includes a wallet-like foldable member and a receptacle for storage of smoking material. The apparatus can also include a holder attached to the foldable member. One or more smoking accessories such as a pipe and a poker can be removably secured in the apparatus by the holder. In its folded configuration, the member stores the receptacle and any stored smoking accessory in a relatively compact configuration that can readily fit in a shirt or pants pocket for convenient carrying. When unfolded into its opened position, the member exposes the stored receptacle and smoking accessory(ies) so that such items can be selectively removed for use. The invented system includes the apparatus's member and receptacle, and in addition, includes at least one smoking accessory such as the pipe and poker. The system thus constitutes a smoking kit capable of holding substantially all smoking necessities.
