A pinched handle makes the slide easy to hold while you're lighting the bowl. The straight design of the stem allows smoke to easily and quickly travel from the product that you're smoking. Each slide is about three inches long, making it an ideal size to carry in a pocket or to keep in a convenient location in a drawer or even an area of the car. There are a few accessories that you can use with the slider, such as an herb grinder, a key clip, and a pipe case. The color on the slide is vivid and delicately painted.
