New Missouri Meerschaum Replacement Bit
FREEHAND (Black) Non-Filtered Vulcanized Rubber
This is an Original Replacement Bit For the current Missouri Meerschaum Freehand Pipe*
*The current Freehand pipes feature a metal ferrule on the wooden Shank. This bit will not fit older Freehand pipes that do not feature a metal ferrule.
This is just about as good as a pipe bit gets. It’s made of Vulcanized rubber, and is on par with similar premium bits that sell for $20 and up!
Originally designed to fit the Freehand Pipe, this upgrade bit now fits ANY of the Filtered Missouri Meerschaum pipes! Note, that this bit does not accept a filter, so adding it to a filtered pipe will render it non-filtered.
As frustrating as it might be the fact remains that the bit portion of pipes occasionally need to be replaced. Why? Because we bite them! Seriously, some folks bite harder than others; some pipes hang in the mouth in such a way that the bits are under more stress than others, and lastly for reselling it’s always better to offer the pipe with a fresh bit with no teeth marks.
These Freehand Bits are made in Italy from vulcanite and are non-filtered. These non-filtered bent bits only fit our Freehand pipes, as well as the other Filtered Pipes we have.
Please note that we only stock bits for the current Missouri Meerschaum line.
Here's a video that I shot in 2011 when Missouri Meerschaum made the change to the Freehand pipe and this vulcanized rubber bit that allows it to now fit all of the filtered pipes.
This Bit Will Fit The Following Pipes:
