Meet Phil's newest pipe, our Proto Rocket Voyager, fully equipped to help you blast off into your next journey. For three years, Phil has redesigned the Proto Pipe® Rocket and applied an artistic spin. Inspired by Sci-Fi classics, the Voyager boasts three updated features. The first is a wider, curved knurled collar on the stash pod that adds substance and grace to its appearance and also provides a more substantial grip to hold Poker in place. The second is his new Proton Poker which has a thicker, solid brass knurled handle that's easier to grip to remove and also adds a solid new look. The third is a double-notched bottom lid that makes it easier to open against stubbornly sticky resin.
Of course, it keeps all the amazing features of the original Rocket. Its bowl is beautifully round and holds a larger smoking capacity than the Proto Classic. The swiveling top lid is shaped into a graceful crescent that cleverly makes it also function as a roach clip. The bottom tar trap has been transformed from a plug that pops out into a bottom lid that swivels like the top lid, making it super easy to clean. The collar around the Stash Pod, that holds the Poker in place, is completely hand-shaped and knurled for improved function, feel, and appearance. Finally, the finished Rocket gets brushed for a lustrous finish all over. No wonder it has become Phil’s personal pipe of choice when he smokes.
Cleaning the Pipes:
Every Proto Pipe has a permanent screen in the solid brass bowl. The poker can be used to clean resin and debris out the bowl when the screen becomes clogged. We recommend removing the Tar Trap and soaking it, along with the pipe, in isopropyl alcohol overnight to help loosen up any resin before cleaning the pipe with pipe cleaners. Be sure to thoroughly rinse your pipe with hot water and wipe it dry after cleaning.
