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
