The Nording Keystone filters help remove the humidity from the tobacco and the condensation created while smoking. Designed for use with the Nording Keystone and Nording Shorty pipes, they can also be used in traditional pipes. When using Nording Keystones in a traditional pipe, you also “lift” the tobacco a few millimeters from the bottom of the pipe bowl, preventing the tobacco from blocking the airflow in front of the draw hole. Lifting the tobacco from the bottom of the pipe bowl also helps keep the pipe lit and at the same time offers the advantage of being able to smoke all the tobacco.
