Locate a pair of ear-buds. Remove the casing around the part that goes in your ear to reveal a nice screen about the size of a nickel.
Remove the screen from the ear buds and cut them to fit the bowl of your pipe. If you can, unscrew the rim off of the top of your pipe to replace the screen with the screen that you removed from the ear-buds. If not, place the screen securely into the bowl of the pipe. Use your fingers to shape the screen.
Press ashes into your newly screened bowl to provide bulk to the screen, thereby preventing any loose tobacco from traveling through the pipe and into your mouth.

Make Your Own Pipe Filter
- Thread starter
Using a block of balsa and an Xacto knife I made some Savenilli style pipe filters. They work well reducing tongue bite, providing cooler smoke yet not reducing draw too much. They’re great for anyone that smokes fast or wet.
After first use portion of the filter was nearly charred from heat, had slightly expanded and changed colors. It’s too early for me to claim the blast filter improves taste. More testing is needed
The filter should have grooves on the side as to not restrict draw. Copying Savenilli design is helpful.
Length of each filter is 40 mm.
