I am completely 50/50 on these. I've smoked many times with a filter and didn't know it was in there. I simply can't tell what difference it makes in terms of flavor and draw. If you like the idea of removing whatever it is filters remove from the smoke then by all means use them. If you don't care whatsoever I don't see the need to spend the money on them.Ah, and another newbie question. Should I buy filters?
What have you tired so far that you enjoyed?Thank you. Could you give me some recommendations about tobacco? I used to be an avid cigs smoker for 9 years until I quit 2 years ago. I still enjoy sweet cigars (that's the main reason I wanted to switch to a pipe, to be able to smoke whenever I want something tasty and less harmful).
Oh, sure. when smoking an untested Chinese pipe you might grow man boobs with writhing suckered tentacles extending out of themStill, you can get lots of proper non toxic Italian Pipe for for 35 bucks
Difficult to give advice there till we know what sources are available to you in Romania, and whether customs regulations allow for importation of Tobacco. Till we know, maybe Estervals?Thank you.

I've bought quite a few knives from them. If you know what to get, you can get some great stuff for cheap. You can also get real junk. Just like China as a whole.I've always thought that this site was sketchy, but then one day my youngest started getting packages in the mail, lots of them. She was buying purses for $.05, designer looking clothes for less than a dollar, and lots of doodads. And, she was really happy with the stuff, and she was really stretching her dollar, ha ha. I still haven't bought from them, but apparently, it is like Amazon for the rest of the world.
As Ukraine is pretty close to Romania (hello, neighbor!) I'd suggest looking at Трубочный Магазин У Георга - https://trubki.net/ - an old small Ukrainian shop that ships worldwide (but check your customs rules on tobacco first). Highly recommended shop. Ukrainian pipes are also pretty cheap, and Golden Gate pipes are okEDIT: Fixed Capitalization in Title (See Rule 9) - Bob
What do you think, is it safe to buy this? Given the fact that I am from Romania, the pipe market here, especially for the Churchwarden models, is pretty scarce.
Thank you in advance!
