Some like pipes that resemble high-end consumer electronic device; others prefer models that feel, and look, more like something you'd find at Home Depot than at the Apple Store.

For the consummate gear-head, Ltd Tools has designed a line of smoking devices with serious hardware-store vibes.

With supremely functional nuts-and-bolts styling, the food grade, stainless-steel smoking apparatus is designed specifically to keep the contents away from kids. The so-called Safety Pipe has a covered bowl that can only be unlocked via a hidden release mechanism: unless you know the trick of opening it, you could be handling it for quite a while without even realizing it's not some sort of obscure wrench.
