The smoke and water travel through these little holes, creating a lot of bubbles. Those bubbles are what diffuse your smoke, making your rips nice and smooth.
- Tree Ash Catcher
The tree ash catcher is actually pretty cool. No, it doesn’t look exactly like a tree, but it does have a tree percolator inside of it.

The slit is what creates the diffusion within this ash catcher. Its diffusion is just as good as maybe even better than the showerhead percolator.
