The Alexander Hygrostatic Pipe

The hygrostatic system on the smoking Pipe Alexander is the result of 35 years perseverance, research and experience, regarding pipes and the enjoyment one can get from smoking with it.

This unique discovery, based on the Bernulli principle, has been allowed to be patterned (No 87833) by the Greek Ministry of Industry and Energy.

Unlike most filter pipes or those without, the Alexander Hygrostatic Pipe reduces drastically moisture and other heavy residue (tar, commarine e.t.c.), which otherwise could be inhaled into our lungs and extinguishes a bitterness and a burning on the tongue.

What you finally feel smoking with the Alexander Hygrostatic Pipe is the pleasure you get by smoking and tasting tobacco.


 

Cool smoking

The smoke in Alexander Hygrostatic Pipe moves speedily through a special wooden filter from Balsa where occurs the first breaking down and cooling of the smoke.

At the filter's end the hole of the first part of the pipe narrows. That increases the speed of the smoke which then drops into a vacuum. Passing through the second chamber of the pipe which is connected to the mouthpiece, causes the smoke to spin.n

The spinning cools the smoke, the cooling moistens it and the moisture takes away the heavy residue and traps them, never allowing them to be inhaled by the smoker or to return to the place where the tobacco is being burned.


The making of an Alexander pipe

As is well known, for the construction of a smoking pipe one needs a piece of wood or Meershaum or other material; its size should be at least 40 x 40 mm. Smoking pipes Alexander are made entirely of briar grain and this grain is developed between the root and the ground and consists of the dormant briar eyes. It takes 150 years for the grain to achieve the size, that will be used to construct a pipe, since it grows 2-5 mm per year.

So, in its 1,5 century of development, it has suffered every possible intervention of nature or man: frost, dryness, tough stone soils; hence the small stones it includes. The biggest harm though is done by the fires in the briar woods.

During the last phase of making a pipe, one can trace all of the above at the bowl of the pipe. The pipes are quality classified according to the quantity and size of the defects, which we have to fill with various colloid stabilizing substances.
