Alpaca bowls is a company based in the US. Generally speaking, Alpaca is known for their high-quality handmade bowls which sport high heat retention and thick clay. The Bambino V2 is a collaboration between 5starhookah and Alpaca. The Bambino V2 was created with shorter sessions in mind.
This bowl weighs in at 226g. The Bambino V2 holds anywhere from 9 – 13g of tobacco depending on your tobacco of choice. It’s rather shallow and has a unique shape compared to their other low-capacity bowls. Due to its shape, it’s a bowl well suited for both blonde and dark leaf tobaccos. It has a very wide spire for airflow. The spire height is high enough so that tobacco doesn’t fall through and low enough that I don’t experience any foil drag. The spire also features notches to help further prevent foil drag.
The bottom portion of the neck has a wide opening similar to the spire. I recommend sticking with mod grommets when using this bowl. With a mod grommet, I’m able to use this bowl with every pipe in my collection.
Trifecta pack: 10g
Tangiers pack: 13g
This bowl is very impressive. It’s not one I knew I needed before but now that I have it I find myself using it quite frequently. When I need to leave the house soon or if I’m going to bed shortly this is the bowl I pull out for my sessions.
