KONUSMEISTER – THE STORY
It may be surprising that a new product for the manufacture of a conical cigarette has come out of Germany, especially since, although the use of cannabis is widespread in most societal levels, legal legitimization appears to be a long way off.
Two German developers have entered this area with a totally different approach: the cultivation of the consumption of cannabis at home through the self-crafting of the conical cigarette.
“Actually, we are talking more about an elegant instrument than a machine,” according to Master Targun. After taking a closer look, it is clear what the father of the world first meant. Designed as a table decoration, KONUSMEISTER’s casing is entirely out of finely-worked rich wood, while the mechanical components are brass, brushed stainless steel and a carefully chosen woven fabric.
The users – the friends of the KONUSMEISTER® call themselves connoisseurs – enjoy actively and independently learning and mastering the turning mechanism. The final result is the conical joint, whose length, diameter and inhalation properties will be self-defined and will reach a perfection that rolling purely by hand can seldom reach.
Good friends like to share their experiences with each other. Therefore, it is no wonder that KONUSMEISTER® is often used in small groups that predominantly meet in private. A real connoisseur presents himself not only as a master of his field, but also as a superb host. In the meanwhile, a members’ group has organized itself. With the “Honorable Society of Connoisseurs” in Germany a slow coalescence has occurred of those, who are committed to promoting societal acceptance of Cannabis consumption. Correspondingly, the natural restraint that is in the society’s own interest leads to the society beginning with the cultivation of Cannabis consumption primarily in private areas. Comparable to the Italian Barista of a Cáfe-Bar or the Latin American Torcedor of a cigar lounge or the bartender at a whisky tasting, the master connoisseur understands his responsibility to be a role model in the creation, presentation and tasting of the conical smoking product in a modest and respectful framework.
Aspirants of the honorable society may pass the symbolic ceremony of an examination for the master craftsman’s certificate and prove their aptitude by crafting their master piece within a regular Connoisseur evening. Once the perfect joint has been crafted the master diploma is officially signed and sealed. This follows the long tradition of the german craftmanship where only certified craftmen who achieved the master diploma can run a crafting business officially.
“Our customers come generally from the upper levels of society. Discretion and privacy are of utmost importance to us, since we want to accept that the consumer decides for himself, whether and how he professes his cannabis consumption in his social environment professes his cannabis consumption,” according to Master Ianus, who is responsible for the brand position of KONUSMEISTER®. Certainly, the contributions the connoisseur culture has made to this controversial discussion, with its style and conviction, has proved influential in stimulating healthy debate of a taboo subject.
Access to KONUSMEISTER® is only available through recommendation. An authorization code given by a current Connoisseur ensures that only committed and responsible patrons may have contact with the manufacturers. According the principle of providing unique and haptic experience the authentication code is engraved in a wooden turned cone which is hand over personally.
