Mouthpiece: this is where you place your mouth and where the smoke is inhaled

Chamber: this is the tube in which the smoke travels to the mouthpiece, after your dry herbs are combusted

Bowl: this is where your dry herbs are placed before being lit and combusted

Ice Catcher: this part catches and holds ice in the chamber.  Its whole purpose is to cool your smoke down before you take a hit.

Downstem: this piece allows smoke to travel from the bowl and through the chamber before being inhaled

Base: this is the bottom of the pipe which helps it stand upright without assistance
