IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF YOUR PIPE SMOKING

Latest update November 12, 2020

WATCHPOINT
A 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

Clay / Aluminium Humidrol - to keep your tobacco fresh


78-AtHumy R29.95 Buy Now

Great absorption
and retention
.

No 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.
