A 50-Year Legacy

- Words by Phil Jergenson

In 1968, I had one of those Eureka moments a few months after my first puff of that magic medicine. Gadgets were in; James Bond had them, how about one for us? How about a special pipe designed to do only one thing perfectly: smoke! A pipe designed with the right tools, like a poker! Car keys don’t work for that. How about a permanent screen? While I’m designing this, it needs cleanable tar trap. And just to make it the ultimate pipe, how about adding a storage pod? My mind took off with the ideas, so off I went chasing my pipe dream.

How To Clean A Proto Pipe

  • "The proto pipe is awesome! A really cool smoking gadget that’s been around for years. I remember buying this same pipe when I turned 18. It was the coolest thing in the world to me and still is 23 years later! Thanks Phil for an awesome pipe and great memories!!!"

    - Michael

  • "I have used a Proto since the mid 70’s under all conditions, indoors and out. There is nothing that even comes close for compact size, precision build, complete cleaning, and good smooth toking. Beware of imitations and knock offs. I’ve been amused by young smokers who have heard of Proto pipes but have never seen one, like it is some kind of legend – which of course it is."

    - Ziggy

  • "I really like mine. The original will always be the crown jewel. But this model improves on the original design. I can use the lid to hold it while heating up resin from used up flower. It’s much easier to access the tar trap as well. Solid brass and a solid hitter."

I needed answers. My hunt to find the backstory of the perfect pot pipe

"If you invent something that becomes known as the Swiss Army knife of pot pipes, a virtually indestructible, highly designed 4 ounces of brass called the Proto Pipe that sells more than 1.5 million units to generations of stoners, you’d expect the world to beat a path to your door. (You know, that whole “build a better mousetrap” thing.) So why was I the only one who’d found my way to the doorstep of a dusty industrial park just off the main drag in Willits?"
