LEAD CONTENT OF AUTHENTIC AND COUNTERFEIT


When 7pipe introduced the TwistyTM in 2016, the instant worldwide popularity of our pipe led to an explosion of counterfeit activity. Unscrupulous snake oil salesmen like glassbluntstore.com and gluntofficial.com started selling cheap knockoffs. Their dark secret, however, was that these fake Twistys were full of LEAD.

We used a US CPSC certified laboratory to test these fakes for lead, and in the chart below, you can see the results. If you or a friend know of someone smoking a fake Twisty, tell them to trash it immediately.



LEAD CONTENT (ppm (parts per million))

  • USCPSC Children's Product Standard (100ppm)
  • RoHS Standard (1000 ppm)
