Vintage Ad (undated): Medico Filters & Pipes
Click to enlarge and you can read all the fine print. Probably from the 50s. I used to try filtered pipes when I was a pipe-n00b, and I didn't like them. I note one completely bogus claim in this ad: "Cushion Bite Nylon Bit Guaranteed Bite Proof." I've seen many, many nylon bits chewed completely to h***. The most bite-proof stem is the hard acrylic, from my experience. Using a nylon stem is like smoking a drinking straw.
