most important word of warning about filter
pipes: Filter pipes must be smoked with either the filter or an adapter (usually supplied with the pipe).
Smoking without the filter (or adapter), even once, will allow moisture to condense in the empty space and seep into the shank, causing it to swell. This will result in a cracked shank, or a loose mouthpiece which is very difficult to remedy. If this happens to you, take it in to your nearest Wesley’s for an opinion. The Tenon/Peg is tougher than the wood!
Keep it clean so it won’t stick. Wipe and pencil it occasionally so it slides easily. Have a look at the Gallery

Savinelli Balsa filters Unfortunately during 2020, due to the pandemic, Savinelli encountered a major problem obtaining balsa filters. The last order they were able to supply was in September 2020. In June this year they sent us an email saying that they had found a source of supply, but that they were unlikely to have stock before December 2021. If you run out you can consider using the 6mm charcoal filter (R49.50/pkt of10) or Meerschaum filters
or even use an adapter to see how it feels to smoke without a filter.

All gone – hopefully more in December/January

78-AtHumy R29.95 (each)
matter how airtight your tobacco jar or pouch, some moisture will evaporate
when the container is opened. The ideal product to use to replace this
moisture is a Humidrol.
This little item has the ability to absorb an amazing amount of water,
which it releases as moisture over a fairly lengthy period of time, keeping
your tobacco fresh, and enjoyable to smoke.
Especially in the
drier parts of the country, why suffer smoking dry crumbs of tobacco,
or risk the unpleasant taste caused by mouldy potato or apple?
Simply soak a Humidrol in warm water, wipe the surface and then put it with your tobacco in your
pouch or jar. Re-moisten it as often as needed.
