The Black Leaf Bong is one of the popular bongs you will see in the market. The designs are great, and you have a lot of selections to choose from. However, we all know that bongs are more than just attractive scientific or heady glass pieces. Should you take your interest on that Black Leaf bong up for sale, or should you choose somewhere else? Let’s all find out, shall we?
Black Leaf is a company based in Hannef Germany. Ernst Meerbeck started Black Leaf in 1998 because he wanted to be a part of the glass production. It’s a branch from Near Dark, a world-renowned German company specializing in smoking paraphernalia. Not content in standing in the sidelines, Ernst decided to create what is now a constantly evolving line of glass smoking products. These products are now the Black Leaf bongs we see today.
Although they did not make any unique innovations in bongs as Illadelph does, Black Leaf bongs are making their mark. They have affordable bongs created using German efficiency and quality. Throughout their early years, Black Leaf glass pieces were considered of poor variety. One forum thread described Black Leaf bong as china glass, a mass-produced bong that is easy to break and shatter. A couple of smokers even shared a harrowing experience of his Black Leaf bong breaking in half while adding water. Another purchase reviewer also noticed that the bottom of the Black Leaf tree arm perc bong he’s ordered seems to be thinner compared to other parts.
Still, others love using their Black Leaf bongs because they are easy to rip. The designs are beautiful to look at, and the pieces are exceptional after a thorough cleaning. Maintenance is easy as well, so you don’t have to worry about spending too much time on a bong.
During the course of their business, Black Leaf gradually made improvements on their glass bongs to make sure that they last long and can give you years of smoking enjoyment. Depending on the type of Black Leaf bong you have, expect hard hits that will make your purchase worth it. You don’t have to worry about the bong getting too warm, either, on long sessions.
Black leaf bongs don’t have the same bong series as RooR and Illadelph. However, they do have several bongs that you could choose from that are affordable, which are:
Black Leaf has several beaker bongs that you can choose from. Most of their bongs come in beaker styles that offer stability and satisfying smoke volume.
