How are things in your neck of the woods? I got to enjoy some Sutliff 1-M today. The day was nasty and rainy but things finally cleared up just in time to walk to my van and head home. #CobLife #LightUpASmile #CornCobPipe

Was talking with Boy about ending our hiatus from #MMBClub we laughed about what will go down in history as the worst episode ever. Did you see the one where our wives sat in for us? Way too many feminine products! #Aristocob #CobLife

Here’s a end view of our new 6mm balsa wood pipe filters.


They come in a small “slab” and you snap them off as you use them. No, they are not triangular and no, they are not made by Savinelli but they will fit nicely into any pipe that accepts a 6mm paper or balsa filter. And the benefits? You’ll get a few more smokes than with a paper Medico or Dr Grabow filter. Best of all, it tightens up the draw on a pipe that you might otherwise be smoking without a filter. I really think you’ll like them. #Aristocob #CobLife #AristocobApproved #CornCobPipe

Medico Pipe Filter US Patent

In a recent video on the Aristocob Youtube channel, I talked about recent changes in the venerable Medico pipe filter. Because I just can't stand knowing just a little about something I went on a hunt for information about how the Medico filters came to be. Below is a pic of the first page of the US Patent that was granted to Paul H Minton in 1933 and again in 1934 as well as a couple old Medico ads. (Click pics to Biggie-Size)

Merry Christmas from Aristocob



OK, just one more and then it’s off to bed with ya. This one is from my favorite daughter @greenwaymom in which she has dubbed #SantaCob. Who can argue with that? #AristocobApproved #Aristocob #CornCobPipe #CobLife #LightUpASmile 

Medico pipe filter change

If you are a Medico pipe filter fan it is not your imagination that they have recently been cheapened by the manufacturer, S.M.Frank. What has changed? As you can see from the photo of a new box of filters (L) and an old-style filter from a NOS Woodie pipe (R), they removed the branding but more concerning is the fact that they seem to have lightened the filter paper. When I get a chance I’ll be sure to record a video on the Aristocob Youtube channel where we’ll conduct an autopsy of each to see if we can confirm these observations. In the meantime we just wanted you to be informed.  Visit www.Aristocob.com
