The Vapman is comprised of two main pieces. The mouthpiece and the handle ring. The mouthpiece is held in place with springs, simply twist to remove it and place your finely ground herbal material in the gold plated copper pan. Reattach the mouthpiece and heat the opposite end of the pan with a jet flame lighter. A layer of mica heating protection prevents the handle ring from getting too hot from the jet flame while in use. Despite it's small size, the Vapman delivers an extremely efficient and tasty vaporizing experience every time. The Vapman fits snugly into the provided carrying case for easy and safe transport.
