    Chances are you’ve seen The Brockton Mk2 by now. If not at your local smoke shop, then certainly floating around online. From the iconic PB engraved on the magnetic lid (for Parkdale Brass, of course) to the sizable bowl, modular body, and undeniable shine, this pipe is the envy of many cannabis consumers. It’s no surprise that this sleek, rugged brass pipe gives a whole new meaning to sophisticated smoking. 

    Designed with a deconstructible body that allows for easy cleaning and soaking, it isn’t hard to keep the chrome-plated brass looking as bright as the first day you bought it. While this is more of a sit-down pipe due to the sheer weight of the brass, this pipe is great for those looking for leisurely, slow smokes at home. Parkdale Brass provides a sophisticated smoking experience with the Brockton MK2.

    Alongside its elegant look that offers a touch of class to every smoking occasion, The Brockton MK2 offers durability and longevity. That is to say, it solves the issue that many smokers have: smashing their gear. Not only can that be disappointing, but also costly! Investing in a high-quality piece that is rugged and built-to-last can save you headaches, as well as money in the long run.

    Metal smoking pipes are generally more resistant, but many of them are made from low-cost materials which can often be toxic. On the other hand, this pipe from Parkdale Brass is crafted from medical-grade chrome-plated brass that is non-toxic, safe to use and doesn’t leech out any chemicals. 

    When it comes to smoking, this pipe definitely has a learning curve. Don’t expect to pick it up and smoke it like any other pipe. For some, this can be frustrating but with patience and persistence, you can learn to smoke The Brockton Mk2. 

    First of all, it is key to note that this pipe lights from the bottom. Why do you ask? To protect your fingers and hair from getting burned or singed. The magnetic lid on top seals to keep the flower safe, as well as to control the airflow. These two features allow for a smooth pull that crisps the flower rather than burning it, much like a vape. 

    You may not get a smooth pull on the first try, but the brand recommends two key tips: using hemp wick and tilting the pipe to a 45-degree-angle. Tilting the pipe helps you see where your light is going and ensure that it is making it to the screen to heat the flower. The hemp wick is there to eliminate the need for sparking the bowl with a lighter, as that can go out while taking a drag. Also, grinding up your flower very finely and not packing the bowl too tightly both seem to help get smooth clouds with The Brockton Mk2. If you’re more of a hash lover, this pipe is ideal! 

    This brass pipe may be at a higher price point for many, but plenty of Parkdale Brass’s customers have said that they actually think it’s a steal. Make of that what you will, but if you are on the hunt for a pipe that provides style, durability, slow smokes, and will always be a great topic of conversation, then look no further than The Brockton Mk2
