In order to dab, you will need a nail or banger. When using a nail, you hold your flame directly to the surface and then add your concentrate. These are often used with a carb cap to keep things at the right temperature. Bangers are heated from underneath and the wax is put in a trough above, so you don't need a carb cap with a banger.
At Everythingfor420.com, we carry both ceramic and titanium nails. Ceramic is loved because it produces the best flavor. However ceramic can develop cracks over time. Titanium is your best option if you are looking for a durable nail. Titanium also retains heat longer.
When choosing a nail, be sure to match the size and gender of your nail to your pipe. For example, if your pipe has a 14mm female joint, you will want to purchase a 14mm male nail.
