    MacBaren HH Acadian Perique

    Filter Adapter Needed?

    Hi, All. Just bought a Peter Klein pipe off ebay. Got a pretty good deal and it looks to be a great pipe. It' seems that it is probably a filter model. Can I smoke it filterless? If so, do I need an adapter? Where can I get one, if needed? Thanks. Eric
