It Is Not A Sin To. . .

It's not a sin to remove the balsa wood filter from a Savinelli and replace it with the adapter sent with the pipe.
All of my Savinelli pipes (except for one that was an estate sans adapter) get smoked with their adapter.

I do have a decent stock of Savinelli balsa filters, I just prefer the pipe be able to pass a cleaner while being smoked.
