Nørding Shorty Filter Stones are highly absorbent natural volcanic clay pellets. Although we recommend them for the Shorty tobacco pipes, Shorty Filter Stones can be used in all types of pipes.
Nørding Shorty Filter Stones help remove the humidity from pipe tobacco and the condensation created while smoking. When using Nørding Shorty Filter Stones in a traditional pipe, you also “lift” the tobacco a few millimetres 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 the pipe smoker keep the pipe lit and at the same time, offers the advantage of being able to smoke all the tobacco (the remaining tobacco is usually lost and scraped out together with the ashes when you’re finished smoking.)
