The next metal pipe was made in N.C. Prior to retiring from the Navy Robert Smith wanted a pipe that smoked cooler than the conventional pipes of the day so he worked on designing the Filto pipe. After retiring he went to Burgaw NC where he began manufacturing the Filto pipe.
In comparison to all the metal pipes I'm smokes so far only the Brial smoked cooler. The draw on the Filto is excellent and the nub on the interior that the bowl fits over extends into the bowl giving more surface area for delivery.
I'm keeping it smokey with some Esoterica Pembroke.
