Alright after much time I have designed Eds TnT Wooden Bog Oak Arizer Air Stem. These measure in at 3” in length, just a little over a 1/2” OD, fit snug and secure in the unit, has 4 slots to provide for extra airflow. A 1/2” screen is installed with a retaining clip, and a small stainless steel pin is inserted through the bushing and into the wood to ensure no separation. Being wood they are virtually indestructible. All pieces have a 14mm tapered mouth piece, making them useable as a water pipe attachment!

Product Description

Alright after much time I have designed Eds TnT Wooden Bog Oak Arizer Air Stem. These measure in at 3” in length, just a little over a 1/2” OD, fit snug and secure in the unit, has 4 slots to provide for extra airflow. A 1/2” screen is installed with a retaining clip. Being wood they are virtually indestructible. All pieces have a 14mm tapered mouth piece, making them usable as a water pipe attachment!

These pieces are dated to be over 5,300 years old, from Scotland where Bog Oak is even more rare than from other countries due to fewer areas where it can be found. Bog Oak is fallen Oak trees that have been submerged in the earth soaking in minerals that have naturally stained them over the years.

I have designed and am making these stems now with a completely new wood to bushing style connection to make it easier with less hassle for cleaning and such for you the user. You will notice that ever stem that ships out now December 15th, 2015 comes with a few extra screens and now 3 high temperature orange orings. I am now turning a small groove into the wooden shaft that presses into the stainless steel bushing where I slide on oring over the end of the shaft and into the groove. The shaft is then pressed into the SS bushing and held in place securely with a compression fit. Having the oring allows the user to simple slide off the bushing and easily remove the screen while leaving the clip in place. You can then take a cotton swab dipped in high proof alcohol, squeeze out the excess and swab out the inside of the stem and bushing. Let it dry, place a new screen under the clip, the oring should still be in good shape but if not simply take the old one off and slide on a new one, then press the shaft end of the wooden stem into the bushing for a solid fit.

Please do remember, these wooden stems should never be washed, soaked, submerged or dipped in any liquid what so ever! This will cause the wood to swell and may crack, surely it will discolor and neither is any of these any good!

Here’s a tip on how to really clean the inside of your Ed’s wooden stems (co/my good friend Snappo) – take a paper towel and twist it into a tight rope, then feed it into the stem through the mouth-tip end while twisting & pushing it through …keep twisting and you will route out any unwanted residual matter – works much better & more thoroughly than with Q-Tips. If you want an even cleaner extraction, use a very thin wash cloth or handkerchief and moisten with alcohol – use twist & route method above and have a fresh showroom-new Ed’s TnT custom stem! And don’t forget to use your Ed’s Bomb Ass Butter to reinvigorate the wood;-)

One thing you can count on, these stems will take a fall a lot better than glass and will long outlast!

Just got a great review for this piece, please check it out here at the VaporBlog!

    This is the only stem I use on my Arizer AIr, and the only stem you’ll ever need. Wood has a lot of advantages over glass: won’t shatter, excellent heat insulation, and microbe resistance are just a few worth mentioning. Bog wood specifically has long been used as a premium pipe-making material, it has several unique advantages over other woods, such as a very high level of durability, the rich black coloring, and that it has absolutely no innate scent or flavor.
    The ability to be used both direct draw and as a a GONG adapter is much more useful than I though, I often switch between direct draw and a Magic Flight Orbiter during the same bowl, which isn’t possible with most other stems. My favorite feature of this stem, particularly compared to the terrible stock stems, is the screens and their retention system. The Air works much better with a fine grind, I have great results with the Magic Flight Finishing Grinder, but even better results with a slightly coarser grind. The stems are LOCKED between the retention ring and the stem itself, so they won’t shift or come loose, and allow you to easily stir, mix, or mash your load while in the stem without any worry of dumping it. The stem also pulls apart very easily when cool and is super easy to clean or swap screens. The stirrer that comes with the Air is long enough to go down the length of the stem, which is handy when cleaning.
    I didn’t expect to be the last stem or adapter I would buy for the Air, but it has become that, this is all I will ever want or need for the Air. I can’t recommend it enough.

    I recently invested in a bog oak stem for my air and when it got hereI could tell I wouldn’t be disappointed. My first stem i received was really loose for some reason but all I did was call Ed and he made sure to take care of me by offering a replacement. It took a bit longer than I expected due to the return but other than that no complaints here the mouth piece is beautiful and sturdy and I can’t wait to get good use from it. Highly recommend if you’re considering it you won’t regret it please its a plus to know that ED stands by his product!

I do so much different pieces and every once in a while a piece may not be as its supposed to be, you let me know and I got you right, that’s what its about here at Ed’s TnT! I hope you enjoy it for a long long time to come and if there is ever anything else I can do for you please let me know!
