Adjustable Kuripe and Tepi
An adjustable Kuripe that fits any nose perfectly and when opened more becomes a very functional little Tepi, a truly wonderful invention! It was first conceived by an ingenious artesian from Rio de Janeiro who frequents the Santo Daime path. It has since become an all time favorite for many, even quite a few indigenous Rapé masters swear by this model.
Because of its length compared to the traditional Kuripe, it gives great pressure to your blow making your self-application come in like a Tepi blow. It is simple yet effective, composed of two wooden tubes fit into a turned wooden base that enables the user to adjust the angle and distance of the tubes.
This Kuripe has already became a standard in Brazil made by a variety of crafters. This particular model was made by a very talented wood worker and furniture maker. He has perfected the concept by using high quality hardwood and making the base in a way that fits snug as bug. It has a nice tight fitting and a guaranteed long life when used correctly; a perfect tool.
Here we see a great crossover of cultures, a concept executed with modern urban tools and applied to tribal science and medicine. As mentioned before it has found its way back to the roots in the forest where it is very well received by most. As all of our products it is made by a true artisan with love and dedication, first perfected for personal use and then produced for other lovers who value precision tools for their passion.
There may be slight varieties from batch to batch since this is a hand crafted product.
