A cleaner, cooler high
Voted best pipe 2020 by Herb
This is the best pipe I've ever used...and I was at Woodstock, um, er, the real one
I loved the weight of the mini in my hands and how easily it cuts as it spins (for as long as I need/want)! Plus the packaging was a nesting doll of extra goodies, with screens and a funnel. :)
A very unique and clever bowl. Unfortunately, clever design alone is not a game changer. The primary point of this bowl is for an easy-to-clean on-the-go bowl, and for that, it excels. While the quality of the craftmanship and design are great, it has some obvious flaws. When using the bowl, there is the distinct taste of metal, which unavoidable. Furthermore, the brushed black coat is relatively easily scratched or otherwise removed. Additionally, a packed bowl is difficult to fully smoke without mixing or moving the herb. The bowl is slightly harder to hit than a carbed bowl, and any clogs in the small bowl piece will require immediate clearing before the bowl can properly be used again. Perhaps the addition of a funneled glass bowl piece connected to the top part would alleviate the issue. The size is small, however the small size is to be expected with the Mini, of course. Cleaning and maintenance of the bowl is also incredibly easy. Due to the small bowl size, hand-broken buds are not as easy to smoke as ground materials, and repacks are a constant requirement. Pros: Clever design, easy to use and clean, highly portable, incredibly durable. Cons: Difficult to hit, metallic aftertaste, expensive. Ideally, if I were to change anything, I would add optional carb and replace the bowl chamber with a tapered glass funnel, allowing for easier, cleaner tasting hits.
I had been eyeing this pipe for a year and finally gave in. The first pipe they sent (kol mini) had problems. The two pieces weren’t snapping on properly, and I’d have to punch the two pieces together to get a proper draw. I brought it up w customer service and they replaced it. So props to them for that. The second pipe snapped on better, or more tightly, and here is my review of that: We don’t take this pipe out w us. It’s something we use in the house, and we have to be careful with it. I have this feeling that dropping it isn’t an option. Also, after several hits, it needs to be cleaned. While it’s relatively easy to clean, you have to do it more often than with a glass pipe. After 3-4 hits, the little cupped area inside is full of resin. If you leave it overnight it gets caked up and more difficult to remove. I find the best way to clean is so brush some olive oil on the inside to loosen up the resin, then to brush dishwashing soap to remove the olive oil and dirt. Is it worth it? Versus the glass pipe, I get a cleaner but less intense hit with the kol pipe. A glass pipe requires one draw for me to get good, but with the kol pipe I need 2 draws. Might be worth it for the clean draw. It’s a nice pipe to have, but we aren’t using it as much as I thought we would. Do I recommend this product? Sure. It’s fun. It’s new. It’s different. If you’re looking for that, go for it. Oh, and one last thing, packaging is the best. Love the box it comes it. As in absolutely love it. These guys know design.
Best piece I’ve ever owned! I’ll be placing an order for the full size as soon as it is back in stock! Smooth hit and easy to clean! Nuff said.
~-~Pros~-~ It's extremely easy to clean. The simplicity of wiping it down between uses and leaving it in some alcohol for an hour as a 'deep' clean is simply the easiest pipe we've ever cleaned, hands down. The shape of the pipe allows a lighter to be stored perfectly on top of or beneath the pipe itself thanks to the Avocado-like shape. The case it comes in is also very beautiful and makes a great mantlepiece for display. The material of the pipe makes it quite durable, seeming to be impossible to 'accidentally' break by dropping when out of it's case. In MY opinion, the taste is clean and pure every use thanks to that filtration system making every inhale of smoke a smooth experience. The Stickers are a nice extra touch, and I have decided to decorate my case with them. -~-Cons-~- The pipe is very expensive, putting it potentially out of some customers' range. The bowl could afford to be more funneled as some product is often left around the edges of the 'hole'. In MY BROTHER'S opinion, there is a distinct metallic taste. This is, however, an expected consequence of using any metal-based pipe. The KOJ Mini's tiny bowl makes frequently repacking a requirement. (The unavailability of the original KOJ pipe resulted in our decision to buy the Mini) Taking in smoke from the pipe requires significant suction, almost like using a straw, which can be a struggle for some users. ***Additional Comments*** While the pipe certainly feels like it's components fit snugly together, there is the ability for the two pieces to 'shimmy' together. Perhaps additional magnets would assist in keeping it a little more tight as both our pipes seem to have this effect, minimal as it is. A toothpick like object of some sort would also be useful in removing the screen for exchanging/cleaning, though an incense stick or toothpick works well in a pinch. The hole in the center of the pipe could also be larger, and the pipe as a whole could be a little deeper.
Love it looks like it's from the future or something, very cool and easy to clean too
Wanted something innovative and for a simple pipe this really checked off my list. Went from using metal bats to this and wow I can tell my lungs appreciate the change. So much smoother, cleaner, cooler, and because of all this yes the draw is harder. I seemed to get used to the harder draw in a few days. Oh also rinse and wipe down every day I found is best or after each use, super easy and quick no big deal.
I bent my KOL pro banging the bowl half on a metal ashtray. While I was trying to figure out what was wrong, I ordered the KOL mini only because it was the only one available. I am a pleased owner of both pipes, they each have their own unique qualities that make them a perfect match. I was able to bend the Pro back to where it hit just as good as the original. The hardest part for me was figuring out how to smoke the Pro with a hemp wick. I exhale, light the wick and slowly inhale while starting the wick at the side of the bowl closest to you, take the wick down the center of the bowl up the sides and the back end of the bowl. Inhale slowly being careful not to blow out the wick. The Mini is a lot easier you just drop the wick on top of the bowl. The Mini is actually smoother than the Pro and easier to clean. The Pro has a more intense flavor profile and a longer lasting bowl. There is a peculiar crackling noise to the Pro pipe that adds an auditory and visual enhancement to the smoking experience. To sum it up the Pro is like toking on tasty water pipe, and the Mini is the smoothest mini spoon pipe you could ever hope for.
I’m waiting on the grinder now I won the 420 sweepstakes so I’m pretty excited but so far I’m really enjoying my kol mini plan purchasing more stuff when it comes available
Amazing really enjoy it my other piece has taking a back seat for now Haha.
So my first pipe was defective...but they corrected their mistake and sent me a new one. It’s awesome, cool smooth and tasty! Customer service is amazing!
Just hits perfectly. I really feel like my throat feels better using this vs. others and its just a breeze to clean
Great little piece, attention to detail from packaging as well as overall fit and finish. Product also shipped fast as well.
