BYag Y Patented Feb. 25, 1947 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE TOBACCO PIPE Joseph N eiser, Miami, Fla. Application March 12 1945, Serial No. 582,316
. 1 Claim.
This invention relates to tobacco pipes and more especially to a means whereby objectionable odors caused by the .pipe, can be neutralized or obliterated in a simple and efficient manner.
With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention consists of certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts hereinafter more fully described and pointed out in the claim, it being understood that changes may be made in the construction and arrangement of parts without departing from the spirit of the invention as claimed.
In the accompanying drawing, the preferred form of the invention has been shown.
In said drawing:
Figure 1 is a view partly in elevation, partly in section of a portion of a tobacco pipe equipped with the present improvements.
Figure 2 is a top plan view of the structure shown in Figure l.
Figure 3 is a View similar to Figure 1, showing a slightly modified arrangement.
Referring to the figures by characters of reference, I designates a tobacco pipe, the stem 2 of which is provided with a screw-threaded opening 3 extendin to the bore 4 in the stem. In the structure shown'in Figures 1 and 2 the opening 3 is adapted to receive a screw-threaded plug 5 having an enlargement or head 6 at its outer end and also having a recess 1 extending through the head, and into the plug- This plug can be formed of a porous material such as wood, clay, etc. In practice, the plug is saturated with an odorant and the recess 1 is filled with the same kind of substance. The plug is then screwed into place, its length being such that the inner or tip .portion thereof will project slightly into the bore 4. The pipe can then be used as ordinarily but the heat generated therein by the burning of the tobacco and by the flow of smoke through the stem, will cause the odorant gradually to evaporate, thereby overcoming or nullifying the objectionable odor usually present during the smoking of a pipe.
Because of the porous nature of the plug, the odorant can be retained therein for a long period of time and only occasional saturations thereof will become necessary.
Instead of screwing the plug directly into the stem 2, a screw-threaded ring 8 can be placed in the opening 9 and this ring, in turn, can receive the porous plug I0. 1
What is claimed is:
The combination with a tobacco pipe having a stem with a bore therein, and an Opening in the stem in communication with the bore, of a porous plug removably seated in the opening and exposed within the bore, there being an dorantreceiving recess opening outwardly within the plug, said plug having an enlarged porous head positioned to overlie a portion of the stem of the Pipe.
