    I was thumbing, or rather scrolling, through the Peterson catalogue and saw that a few of the pipes I have from Peterson are able to use 9mm filters. I was curious as to what kind works best with them? I know some guys don't like filters at all, but I'm thinking filters might help to curb my ginigivitis irritation when I smoke. So once again any advice on what filters work best with Peterson Aran series, I have a B5 and an 05, would be greatly appreciated.

    It may sound silly but............... Peterson filters.

    If at first you don't succeed you are running about average.

    I can't seem to find those anywhere. Haven't spotted them on any online sites or at any local B&M's.

    I only find them listed on UK sites. Generic 9mm filters should work though. The Peterson filters are activated charcoal if I remember correctly.

    Being new to pipe smoking, my question has probably been asked many times before. Do filters reduce the flavor and enjoyment of a smoke. There is no way I would ever want a filter on a fine cigar. So I can imagine that it might decrease the enjoyment of a pipe as well.

    In my experience, a filter inhibits the draw of the pipe....Since I savor an open draw I do not use filters....

    To wade in on this question.... I would say it's the one that you have thrown away before you put it in your pipe that works best.

    Just as I thought. Thanks hilojohnny and Lawrence. I'll never give it another thought.

    Yeah, any 9mm filter will fit the Pete filter pipes according to the literature I was able to find, doesn't have to be the real McCoy...I might be inclined to try Savinelli's 9mm Balsa filters (or better yet, find a 9mm balsa dowel, and go to town with a saw); from what I hear, they don't detract from the flavour of the smoke as much as the charcoal contraptions do.

    My personal feeling is a deep and abiding hatred for any kind of filter.

    I'm with the majority. The best filters for Peterson's pipes are the ones not in them.

    I like and use filters, for me they stop or at the least cut down any tongue bite. I can smoke just about any virginia tobacco enjoying the flavors with my normal draw, and not have to wory about concentrating on small sips or getting bitten. I don't think I am loosing any of the flavors, but with my limited palate ability I will never for sure, don't tell me I don't want to know, I am happy with what I am doing.

    Use the 9mm balsa filters. I use them in some pipes and they are fine. Forget the suggestion to make your own. That really would reduce your draw. The commercial ones have a corrugated edge. After each smoke I cut off the black end with scissors and wash and dry the filter. Some would say it is not worth the trouble and I can't disagree with that. Just try it, you might like it or not.
