Most smokers clench their pipes. It's something that is a reality of pipe smoking, no matter who you are. Instead of continually hurting your teeth and marking up your pipe, why not put a soft rubber bit over the tip of your pipe stem? This will make your pipe more comfortable and will protect your treasured pipe as well.

Width: 0.52 in. / 13.41 mm.
They work well, make it easier and more comfortable to clench and also keep teeth marks off your stem. The only drawback is they do make the bit a little bit bigger, not by much but still bigger which is a bit annoying but still worth it to have on the pipe
Perfect fit for my Lorenzetti and Peterson, saves your teeth and the stems.
Very good for pipe smokers with partial dental work.
Use them on my more expensive pipes. Help to protect the stem. Seem to stretch to fit various stem sizes and stay in place.
Works for me
Great way to protect your pipe.
Have used this forever. Best thing to keep smoking a pipe from getting bite marks. Also, keep from feeling that "horse bit" thing by smokers. The Rubber Bit fits well w/ standard stems. But it takes a little effort fitting em w/"duck-dove" extra wide stem piece. To think that I used to improvise, before I found BJLONG, w/those wide rubber bands merchants use for veg and lobster claws, Yeah, hilarious, innit? Try getting yours..BJLONG PIPE BITS, I MEAN!
I put these tips on ALL my pipes. Dont like the feel on my teeth without em. They also protect the stem from teeth marks and wear.
I'm sorry I waited so long to try these bits. They are really beneficial, especially for larger pipes which I smoke exclusively. I recommend them. One minor issue is that with wider bits on some stems these bits are tough to slide on. I wish they were a tad more stretchy.
