most expensive bongs 2019

Nope, your eyes are not deceiving you, this bong was legitimately sold at an auction for one million dollars… (Photo Cred: IlluzionGlass)

Features:

  • Almost 2” Tall
  • Length: 8″
  • Width: 11″
  • Height: 22″
  • Weight 5.6 lbs.
  • Skulls Remove to Reveal Mouthpiece
  • One Percolator

What Makes This the World’s Most Expensive Bong?

Let’s quickly take a look at what exactly makes this bong worth this massive price tag.

Best Collaboration in History

To be honest, I cannot think of a more fitting collaboration that deserves such a high price tag. At the end of the day, Darby, Banjo, Scott Deppe and Clinton Roman are some of the best glass blowers in the world, and the fact that they all worked together on a piece is enough to make it worth more than most bongs.

To say this is the best collaboration in history might sound ignorant or like a generalization until you seriously take a look at the collections that each of these artists have produced in their careers. Then you begin to see that this truly is a dream team collaboration the likes of which may never be rivaled.

Out of This World Appearance

The design of this bong is purely out of this world. While the subject matter is a bit dark, and to some demonic, there is no denying that this may be one of the coolest designs in the bong world.

Overall, the minute detail taken into account by these artists to give this bong one cohesive artistic flow throughout is extremely impressive, and part of the reason it is the most expensive water pipe in the world.

2.  Earl the Skeleton Pipe by Kevin Murray – $1,000,000

most expensive water pipes list

Wait, you mean there are two bongs that cost one million dollars in the world? Believe me, we were just as shocked to learn about this as you are.

Features:

  • Over 3” Tall
  • Separate Bones and Joints
  • Stunning Fumed Glass
  • Custom Stand Included
  • Consists of 8 Separate Pieces

What Makes This the World’s Most Expensive Bong?

Let’s be real, unless you are some sort of crypto millionaire or someone with entirely too much money, this bong is probably out of reach. But what makes it so damn expensive?

Absolutely Massive Piece of Glass

This bong is not just a bong. In fact, it is comprised of 8 separate pieces, 6 dab rigs, and 2 dry pipes. So when you break it down, it is really like paying for eight $125,000 pieces of glass. A lot more reasonable right (not really)?

This skeleton bong stands about 3” tall, and is mounted on a similar stand as your typical classroom skeleton. However, this is a custom mount that alone costs a few thousand dollars.

Anatomically Correct Skeleton (Almost)

It is truly amazing how Kevin Murray was able to not only build a massive piece this beautiful and symmetrical that actually functions – but one that is also fairly anatomically correct. It does not have every bone in the human body, as some are too small and intricate to create, however, from a distance, the skeleton seems to have almost every bone in the body handcrafted individually out of glass.

3. Sedna by Banjo & Joe Peters – $300,000

most expensive bongs list 2019

We found this bong towards the end of making this list, and were simply astonished not only by the intricate artwork, but by the fact that it was sold for the price of a house!

 

Features:

  • Over 12” Tall
  • Realistic Aquatic Sculptures
  • Stands Up On Its Own
  • Most Expensive Bong Ever
  • Actually Functional

Why is This the Most Expensive Bong in the World?

Honestly, while this is clearly a work of pure beauty, and is amazingly detailed, it is hard to tell you exactly what makes this bong worth more than $190,000 more than the next most expensive bong in the world, but we will try.

One of a Kind

As you may have guessed by the zany appearance of this bong, it is one of a kind. As far as we know, no piece exists that is anywhere close to its appearance. Much like the other high-end water pipes on this list, it was made to be a collectors item, making it appreciate value over time due to its scarcity. It’s hard to believe that this bong might be worth even more one day!

Made By the Greats

This project was made as a collaboration between Banjo and Joe Peters. Both of these artists are some of the most legendary craftsman in the industry and have amassed large followings of fans and customers over their many years as professionals. Their work clearly speaks for itself.

Unbelievably Detailed

The details in this bong make it one of the most beautiful and realistic pieces we have ever laid eyes on. On display in Grey Space Art, a unique glass movement in New York, this is one of their most prized pieces in their large and expensive collection.

When you look close, each fish and plant has its own subtle details that make it extremely realistic. There is not a spot on this bong that escapes the consistency and attention to detail maintained by these artists.

4. Hayabusa Satellite Bong by Sagan Glass – $110,000

highest price bongs list

This bong is literally out of this world! Modeled after the Hayabusa Satellite, this realistic and expensive bong is one of the highest priced in the world for a multitude of reasons.

Features:

  • Over 12” Tall
  • Actually Works
  • Extremely Detailed
  • Made With Borosilicate Glass
  • Sturdy Base

Why is this Bong So Damn Expensive?

Look, I don’t think there is any reasonable person on Earth who thinks that a bong is honestly worth more than maybe a few thousand dollars. However, in the world of collectors and one-of-a-kind pieces, prices tend to get inflated, and for good reasons. Let’s explore some of the reasons why this is one of the most expensive water pipes in the world.

Handcrafted by the Best

As you may have imagined, not just anyone picked up glassblowing to make this masterpiece. In fact, it was crafted by Sagan Glass, who is a Bellingham, WA native known for his unique space inspired designs of custom, hand blown bongs, hand pipes, and more.

Excruciating Detail

When you take a close look at this bong, you can really see the insane amount of detail that was taken into account while making it. In fact, just about every component on this thing is inspired by the real anatomy of a satellite. Even the solar panels on the wings have been woven using specialized glass blowing techniques in order to give them a realistic grid look.

Made for Collectors

Again, this is a one-of-a-kind piece, which almost automatically makes it a collector’s item when combined with its intricate and beautiful design and the expert behind it. So, as a result, this causes the cost of the piece to inflate, making it one of the most expensive bongs in America and the world.

5. Fab Egg Collab by Scott Deppe & Sagan Glass – $101,000

most expensive bubblers 2019

This is another out of this world collaboration, inspired by outer space. Both of these artists are absolutely amazing at their craft, and have once again produced one of the most expensive water pipes ever.

Features:

  • Faberge Egg Percolator
  • Over 12” Tall
  • Huge Bowl Pack
  • Thick Glass
  • Broad Base
  • Matching Cap, Bowl Pack, and Bong

What Makes This One of the Most Expensive Bongs in the World?

Okay, so this bong is actually a bit different in terms of design and functionality than many of the other pieces on this list, making it one of the highest priced bongs ever.

Top Glass Blowers Collaboration

Sagan Glass and Scott Deppe (both mentioned again in this article) worked together in order to bring this dreamscape to reality. This is the equivalent of a glass blower all star team. Imagine if Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan played on the same team, and that is the sports equivalent of this collaboration.

Actually Practical, Usable Design

Not that you would ever dream about using this bong, but if you tried, it actually works, and works well. The Faberge Percolator in the center is one of our favorite types of percolators because of the way they look and how effective they are. The glass bowl is humongous, and made for massive packs. On top of that, it comes with a cap in order to save hits for later if need be.

6. Gold Encrusted Skull Bong by Scott Deppe – $100,000

most expensive water pipes guide

This might honestly be the greatest display of talent we have ever seen in a bong. It looks more like an ancient Mayan artifact than a water pipe.

 

Features:

  • 21 Karat Gold
  • 9” Tall
  • One of a Kind
  • Fumed Quartz Finish
  • Most Expensive (Known) Bong in the World
  • Actually Smokeable

What Makes This One of the Most Expensive Bongs in the World?

Okay so before we dive into the individual features about what makes this bong so expensive, let’s take a second to appreciate the artist behind this one of a kind bong.

Scott Deppe – The Man Behind the Mask

Scott Deppe is the co-founder of Mothership Glass, a high-end, custom glass blowing company that specializes in the zaniest, most beautifully designed and expensive bongs on the planet.

With over 20+ years of glass blowing experience, this guy knows a thing or two about how to make a top of the line water pipe.

If you want to learn more about Scott and his work, you can easily follow him on Instagram, or check out the Mothership Glass website.

100’s of Hours of Work

No one knows exactly how long this piece took Scott to make, but we can imagine that it is hundreds, perhaps even thousands of hours. The best people in any craft charge a high rate for their time, as a result, you can expect that a large portion of this price tag is related to the time that it took to craft.

One of a Kind Bong

As far as we can tell, this is the only model of this bong ever made, which jacks up the price tag significantly.

The Gold and Crystals Involved

Only Scott knows exactly how much gold and crystals were used in the making of this expensive bong, but based on appearance, you can tell it is a lot. This certainly influences the cost of this piece.

7. RooR Skull Gun – $90,000

most expensive dab rigs 2019

Yup, you read that right, this glass is the second most expensive bong in the world (as far as we know), made by the world class bong brand – RooR.

Features:

  • Made in 2010
  • Realistic Gun Design
  • Glow in the Dark
  • Neon Polished Quartz
  • Excellent Percolation
  • Over 18” Long and 10” Tall

What Makes This One of the Most Expensive Water Pipes in 2019?

Let’s take a look at what makes this crazy piece of glass one of the most expensive bongs in the world.

Collaboration Between the Best Artists

This wonderful creation was born out of a creative collaboration between Adam G., Darby, Buck, 2BA, and Eusheen – each respected as some of the best in the glass blowing world. As a result, you can expect a wild piece like this as the outcome, and you can also expect a high price tag to go with it.

The Appearance

Okay, to be completely honest, this thing looks absolutely amazing. You ever pack-a-punched a gun in CoD Zombies? Yeah, this thing looks like it came right out of an Element-115 infused machine from outer space.

On top of that, this bong is actually completely accurate in terms of its design when compared with a real gun. It features a barrel, scope, trigger, clip,, and even stocks that feel good in your hand if you choose to hold this thing without fear of dropping it.

Huge in Size

This bong is HUGE. It is almost the size of real life assault rifles. Just the raw size of this piece alone would cost you around $1,000 without all of the custom designed work by some of the best artists in the world.

8. Monkey See, Monkey Shoot by Robert Mickelson and Coyle – $45,000

most expensive bongs in the world

This seemingly Planet of the Apes inspired bong is truly one of a kind. The design is even more impressive when you consider that it is one piece of glass.

Features:

  • Almost 2” Long
  • Over 8” Tall
  • Complete with Clip, Bullets, Trigger, Site, and More
  • Fully Functional

What Makes This One of the Most Expensive Water Pipes?

Honestly, this piece is another one of a kind creation from some of the best in the business. It is completely 1:2 scale to a real AK-47 and on top of that it has a consistent theme throughout the entire piece.

Massive One Piece Glass Bong

When you think about the fact that this entire bong is one piece of glass, it becomes far more impressive. Even without the custom hand blown design and legendary creator, the sheer scale and precision of this bong is enough to price it well over $1,000.

Amazing Creation from One of the Best

Robert Mickelson is a legendary glass blower. This piece was created as part of his “Weapons of Peace” line, which he made in 2015. The function takes a back seat to design, but this water pipe does also work, and can be hit through the gun stock.

9. Double Rainbow Bubbler and Hand Pipe – $33,000

most expensive dab rigs

This sophisticated smoking device looks almost like an Octopus, or a grouping of clouds with a rainbow texture. The whimsical appearance is matched with high-quality performance.

Features:

  • Bubbler and Hand Pipe in One
  • Comes Apart for Smoking
  • 15.25” Long
  • 5” Wide
  • 6” Tall

 

Why Does This Bong Cost So Much?

Look, we realize there is still no reason for a bong to be priced this highly, but we will try our best to explain the work that went into it, and what makes the final product one of the most expensive bongs in the world.

The Avengers of Glass Blowing

If you had to pick a team of glass blowers to save the world from impending doom (not sure why you would) this would probably be the best combination. Adam G., Darby, 2BA, Eusheen, and Buck all collaborated on this project back in 2010, making one of the most expensive glass bongs ever.

Two Pieces in One

On top of the dream team that made it, and its beautiful, unique design, this piece is actually a hand pipe and a bubbler in one. The two disconnect in order to be used individually.

Realistic Size and Design

This is one of the few pieces on this list of expensive water pipes that is actually realistic in terms of size and design. Not that you would ever smoke a $30,000 bong, but if you did – it would be easy to use and move.

10. Pirate Ship Bubbler – $30,000

highest priced water pipes

This menacing glass creation is one of the most creative bongs we have ever seen, which is part of the reason it has such as high price tag.

Features:

  • 6 Cannons Which Are Bowls
  • Over 2” Long
  • Over 18” Tall
  • Complete With Masts, Sails, and Masthead

What Makes This One of the Most Expensive Water Pipes in 2019?

So what makes this one of the most expensive bongs in the world?

Collaboration Between the Best

This bad boy is a collaborative piece from Buck Glass, LaceFace Glass, and Joe O’Connell. It was made in 2010 and sold at auction for $30,000. It now sits in the Illuzion Glass Gallery in Denver Colorado.

Time Put In

Can you imagine how long this thing must have taken to make? Easily 100+ hours were put into creating this beauty. That and the collaborative effort between the best glass blowers in the world makes it a very high price bong.

Actually Functional

Okay, all of the bongs on this list actually work (if you have the balls to smoke them), but the fact that this one has 6 different cannons that function as bowls is amazing. How an artist can manage to fit this much detail into a bong while still making it functional is honestly beyond us.

11. Vabor Bubbler by AKM, Cowboy & Darby – $30,000

most expensive bubblers list

This is one of the cooler collaborations on this list in terms of how the artists worked together in order to bring all of these pieces together. Each artist was responsible for their own sections, and then fused them together in order to finalize the project, giving it a cohesive, yet variety-filled look. (Photo Cred: IlluzionGlass)

Features:

  • 5.75″ Long
  • 5″ Wide
  • 11″ Tall
  • 2.05 lbs.
  • 14mm Female Joint
  • 5 Encased Opals

Why is This One of the Most Expensive Water Pipes in 2019?

When legends collide on a one of a kind piece, you know that the price tag is going to be huge. Let’s take a look at what factors contribute to this super expensive custom bong.

Dream Team

AKM, Cowboy and Darby are all worthy glass blowers who have proven themselves in their craft through years of experience. These guys are all respectively some of the best glass blowers in the world with their own specific styles. It is always impressive to see artists be able to tie their individual styles together to make a cohesive piece.

Winner of the 2017 Annual 420 Party Collaboration

420 Cannabis Events are nationwide events that call on all the Stoners in the States to bring their best and baddest creations. From edibles, to new ideas, custom blown glass and more, you could find just about anything at these events. This piece won the 2017 Award for Best Bong at the event, and rightfully so.  

12. Bear Holding Cup Dab Rig by Coyle & Disk – $23,000

most expensive water pipe list

Dudes, this is one badass looking bear. Its psychedelic color scheme, menacing grimace, and McDonald’s cup make for a confusing, yet aesthetically pleasing piece.

Features:

  • 14mm Hand-Formed Female Joint to Fixed-Stem
  • 14mm Male Quave Club Banger Included
  • 5.25″ Tall
  • 4.25″ Wide

Why is this One of the Most Expensive Dab Rigs Ever?

Again, I can’t sit here and try to convince you that dropping $23,000 on a dab rig is a good investment (unless it appreciates in value over time), but let’s explore why this is the most expensive dab rig on our list.

Totally Functional Dab Rig

This is a completely functional dab rig that comes with standard size attachments for easy replacement (if you ever use this rig).

Only One Ever Made

Once again, this is a one of a kind piece, and you will never find another one like it. Coyle and Disk may not be as popular or revered as some of the other artists on this list, but they are still some of the best in the world.

13. Hot Rod Bubbler by Adam Whobrey & Steve Hops – $20,000

worlds most expensive bongs

This realistic looking hot rod inspired bubbler is truly one of a kind. Completely functional, even the wheels on this thing work!

Features:

  • Over 12” Long
  • 5” Tall
  • 2 Percolators
  • Large Custom Bowl Pack

Why is this One of the Highest Priced Bongs in the World?

Just like hot rods, this bubbler will set you back a pretty penny, but why?

Unique and Beautiful Design

Aside from the fact that this thing is one of a kind, there is no denying the pure beauty of this piece. Even the underbody of the hot rod looks accurate, with pipes and tubes in all sorts of directions, making it look like a real car.

On top of that, this bubbler is not too complicated that it makes you not know where to look. A lot of the other pieces on this list can be a bit much to take in all at once, but when you look at this piece, there is no question what it is.

Lovely Collaboration

Adam Whobrey and Steve Hops are yet two more legendary glass makers. While less widely known than some of the other legends on this list, their work speaks for itself. As far as the collaboration itself goes, it is hard to tell two artists worked on this because of its cohesiveness – a factor that makes this expensive bubbler even more impressive.

14. Illuminati Murrini Mini Tube Beaker Bong by Dave Strobel – $20,000

most expensive water pipes in the world

This might be one of the more traditional bongs on our list in terms of its design. It is still quite zany and different in terms of looks, but has a more practical design.

Features:

  • 14mm Hand-ground Female Joint
  • 14mm Male to 14mm Male Removable 4 Slit/12-Grid Downstem
  • 14mm Hand Ground Dome
  • Entire Piece in UV Reactive Illuminati Glass
  • 11.5″ Tall
  • 3.6″ Wide Base

Why is This the Most Expensive Beaker Bong in the World?

Let’s take a look at what makes this Dave Strobel creation one of the most expensive bongs in the world.

It’s A Conspiracy Man

Illuminati Glass? Most expensive bong in? It’s a total conspiracy man! Nah, we are just kidding, Illuminati Glass is just a brand that Dave collaborated with to make this piece a reality. They are known for their high-quality glass.

Hand Blown to Perfection

This entire bong is hand blown, from the tube, to the glass bowl, cap, base, and designs on the side. That is extremely impressive when considering the precision and detail contained in this piece.

15. RooR Excalibur – $15,000

what is the most expensive bong in the world

This is the tallest bong on our list, and possible the tallest one we have ever seen. At over 6 feet tall, this thing is a lot of glass.

 

Features:

  • Over 6 Feet Tall
  • Comes in 4 Pieces
  • 33cm Wide Base
  • Winner of HTCC Best Glass Category 2009
  • 9mm Thick Glass

What Makes This One of the Most Expensive Water Pipes?

The running joke is that this bong is so expensive because RooR makes it. This is one of the Best Bong Brands in the world, which typically results in higher prices for their glass – but rightfully so. RooR produces nothing but the highest quality glass, and hand blows all of their pieces right here in the United States.  

Realistic Design

Well, sort of. Aside from the part where this thing is 6 feet tall, it actually has a semi-realistic design in terms of how it is put together. You don’t have to worry about spikes or some alien-looking glass poking you in the eye or hands while smoking it (if you ever dared to).

Very Tall

Six feet of glass is A LOT OF GLASS. Even if this wasn’t made by RooR, a contest winner, or famously photographed with B-Real of Cypress Hill, this bong would still be well over $1,000 just from the massive amount of glass and time needed to make it a reality.

Extremely Good Filtration and Diffusion

Due to the massive custom sized diffused downstem, and the ridiculous amount of glass in this piece, there is no shortage of room to fit all sorts of percolators in this bad boy. As a result, by the time the smoke finally reaches your mouth six feet away, you are met with a smooth and cool hit every time.

16. “Opal Hater” Haterade Bubbler by Luda & Evol – $14,000  

what is the most expensive dab rig in the world

If you can afford this bong, chances are you will attract a lot of haters. What better way to great them than by taking a fat rip from this Haterade inspired bong by Evol and Luda.

Features:

  • 14mm Hand-formed Male Purple Rain Joint
  • Fixed 7 Hole Purple Rain Diffusor Stem
  • 14mm Hand-formed Purple Rain Dome
  • 6 Opal Coin, 6 Opal Pill, and 12 Opal Cabachon
  • 7″ Tall
  • 3.25″ Wide
  • Comes with Safe Traveling Case

What Makes This One of the Most Expensive Bubblers in the World?

As we get closer to a semi-realistic price range for expensive bongs, we begin to understand why they are so expensive. Let’s see why this one prices in at $14,000.

Epic Design

The design is truly one of a kind. But, on top of this, they did not half-ass anything. There are even nutrition facts and a logo sandblasted into the side of this thing. Not to mention the 20+ custom cut opals that decorate the piece, each costing a few hundred dollars a piece on their own.

Collaboration Made in Heaven

Both of these artists are known for their wild styles, and practical, yet expensive and unique designs. When we found out that these two did a collab, we knew it would result in one of the most expensive water pipes – not to mention one of the most creative.

17. Pterodactyl (Lemon Drop and Blue Dream) Dab Rig by Elbo – $12,000  

most expensive bubbler in the world

This extinct dinosaur is a menacing sight. The blue and yellow design really makes the beauty of this design stand out, and the shape of the rig make for an amazing performance rig as well.

Features:

  • 10mm Female Hand-Formed Joint
  • 2-Hole Diffusor Stem
  • 10mm Male Quave Club Banger Included
  • Over 18” Tall
  • Over 8” Wide

Why is This One of the Most Expensive Concentrate Rigs?

It always amazes me to see such a creative design hand blown into reality, but when you combine it with a functional design, and a legendary artist, sparks will fly.

One of A Kind Design

Much like the Pterodactyl, artwork like this is (practically) extinct. Pictures can’t do this custom dab rig enough justice.

Realistic and Functional Design

The height of this dab rig allows for superior filtration, diffusion, percolation and cooling. By the time the smoke hits your mouth, it is the coolest one you will ever take. It better be considering the price tag…

18. Heart Klein Recycler Dab Rig by AKM – $8,750

what is the most expensive hand pipe

This might actually be the most detailed and anatomically correct piece of glass we have ever come across. From the veins to the arteries, to the tissue itself, every inch of this bong is oozing with realism.

Features:

  • 14mm Hand-Formed Female Joint
  • 6-Hole Diffusor Stem
  • Matching 14mm Slide With AKM Millie Handle
  • 14mm Male 45º XL Quave Quartz Club Banger Included
  • 10″ Tall
  • 3.4″ Wide Base

Why is This One of the Most Expensive Recycler Dab Rigs in the World?

To be honest, this is one of the dab rigs on this list that actually approaches a realistic price tag. While it is still insanely expensive for a bong, the artwork and man hours put into this thing is simply amazing.

Anatomically Correct (More or Less)

The longer you look at this dab rig, the more realistic it becomes. Everything from the veins to the ventricles, and even the shape of the heart and valves themselves are included. Overall, this might be as close as you can get to anatomically correct while still making a functional dab rig.

Absolutely Stunning Artwork

This entire collection by AKM has some of the coolest artwork we have ever seen. If you look at each piece in this collection, you would be hard pressed to find a piece you don’t like (minus the price tag part).

19. Glass Torch Rig by Nate Miers & Hitman – $7,999.99

highest cost bong

You guys, this rig actually comes with its own built-in torch for lighting it, with custom temperature control. What?! (Photo Cred: Angie’s Boutique)

Features:

  • 18mm Male Direct Inject Joint
  • 18mm Female Dome
  • Flared Mouthpiece
  • Reinforced Neck
  • Reinforced Stemless Arm
  • Hammerhead Perc
  • Built In Torch
  • Butane Chamber

What Makes This One of the Most Expensive Dab Rigs?

Okay, so what goes into making an $8,000 dab rig, and how do you justify the price?

Built-In Torch Lighter

To start, this might be the only dab rig on Earth that has a built in torch with butane chamber. On top of that, Nate Miers designed it to be completely refillable with butane gas in an easy to access way.

Custom Blown Glass Design

Just like every other bong, rig and bubbler on this list, this dab rig is entirely custom made by some of the best glass blowers on the planet. That alone makes it one of the most expensive rigs, not even including its high functionality, and completely beautiful design.

20. Squid Chopper Hybrid by Burtoni & Euphoria – $7,000

most expensive dab rigs guide

This extremely expensive dab rig is the very definition of custom made. Every last detail on this thing is entirely one of a kind, from the slide to the vapor dome, to the suction cups on the bottom of the legs.

Features:

  • Eight Sculpted Legs with Suction Cups
  • Four Missile Launchers
  • 18mm Male Slide Joint
  • Chopper Blade Vapor Dome
  • 12” Wide Blades
  • 18mm Female Vapor Dome Joint
  • 18mm Glass Divided Nail
  • 16” Long
  • 6.5” Tall
  • Removable Concentrate Dish
  • Removable Concentrate Dabber
  • 5.5” Long Custom Dabber

Why Such A High Price Tag for This Dab Rig?

$7K is nothing to shrug at, especially for a dab rig. So what makes this one of the most expensive dab rigs?

Safe and Secure Design

Out of all the products on our list, this might be the safest design of them all. Not only does it have a low profile with a wide and long base, but it also has suction cups on the bottom to keep it secure on almost any surface.

Nothing Like It

Look in the sky, it’s a squid, no it’s a helicopter, wait no it’s a skeleton… Put simply, I don’t think I have ever seen anything like this. Sure, all the pieces on this list are one of a kind, but everything about this design from the shape, to the elements used, to the unique color scheme, from top to bottom this piece is one of a kind.

21. Custom Triple Coil Beaker Bong w/ Pyramid Perc and Matching Ashcatcher – $6,800

Why is this Bong So Expensive?

You guys, imagine you took every cool attachment you’ve ever seen on a bong, and put every single one of them into one super bong. That is actually what this bong has done. There are more attachments on this thing than 10 bongs combined. I would take the time to explain them all, but for fear of sounding like a used car salesman, I’ll let you read the list above.

Actually Usable

Okay so this thing is not only usable, it actually was designed to be used often. While a lot of these other most expensive bongs on this list are smokable, they are mostly designed to be looked at and collected. This bong on the other hand was actually made to be smoked on a regular basis – as made evident by the ridiculous amount of filtration and percolation included in the design.

Unbelievable Percolation and Filtration

So let’s talk a little bit about the percolation and filtration in this thing, without writing a PhD dissertation about it:

  • Custom Ashcatcher With 3 Chambers
  • Pyramid Percolator
  • Triple Coil Percolators

On top of that, the thing is over 2 feet tall! Even without all of this scientific glass, you could easily get a clean and cool hit just from the massive height and a small diffused downstem. But when you add all of this gear to the build, this might be the smoothest bong in the world.
