This is an adjustable blowpipe.  With this very smart and solid bamboo wood design, you have a Kuripe and a Tepi in one pipe.
The joining mechanism allows you to adjust the angle.

Two wooden tubes fit into a cylindrical base piece that twists enabling the user to adjust the angle and distance of the tubes. Dimensions measure 13,5 cm (longest tube) x 13 cm (shortest tube) x 1 cm (receiving tube outside diameter).

The parts that connect to each other (the “hinge”) may become looser or tighter over time. Advice is to apply a little beeswax to the connecting parts. When u use some oil or shellac the piece will have a nice shiny outside. It will not only look good but also keep the pipe preserved against external factors.

To keep shipping costs low this item will be sent “unhinged” so it can be sent as a letter or registered letter. After receiving it’s very easy to connect it.

Tepi and Kuripe

Traditionally Rapé is administered through a pipe made out of bamboo or bone. The Tepi is a blowpipe that you can use to administer another person. When receiving Rapé the other blows it through both nostrils. In general, the shape of the Tepi is straight, curved or V-shaped.
A different form is self-administration. For this, you use a Kuripe. The Kuripe has a V- shape and connects the mouth to the nostril. In this case, you blow the Rapé to yourself.
