AbstractA device, comprising a detachably connected mouthpiece and body, for powdered substances contained in a capsule which is longitudinally inserted into the cylindrical bore of a pivotably mounted carrier member for pivoting into a transversly disposed recess in the body of the device. A pair of cutting blades is fixedly attached to the body at opposite ends of the recess for severing the ends of the capsule during the pivoting movement. A bore in the mouthpiece and body coincides with the bore of the carrier member and with holes in the blades so that air can be drawn longitudinally through the severed capsule for inhalation or insuffation.
