Republic OCB precut filters & Slim Fit booklets

OCB is proud to launch its new range of OCB precut filters. These precut filters are wrapped in a protective film ensuring your tips to be always clean and easy to carry. This range of stylish OCB packs comes in five different variations: extra slim, slim, menthol extra slim, charcoal extra slim, and Combi-pack (a 50 leave booklet + 50 Extra Slim tips).

Republic Technologies has also made some changes to their OCB line of Slim line booklets. For expert users who complain about the overlapping of the paper leaf when rolling, Republic introduces the SLIM FIT size, which is 109mm long and 40 mm wide, thus avoiding too much overlap. The extra fine and translucent paper is especially aimed at very discerning RYO smokers. A new hot steam process has been used in the watermarking so that the papers are smoother to the touch

Vauen Two New Pipe Sets

Vauen’s new Tivoli collection incorporates all the love of detail of the company’s Scandinavian touch. The noble silver colored ring on the front side of the stem is meticulously embedded in the wood and lends this pipe a certain touch of class which makes it something special. All these pipes have a plug mouthpiece and are designed for the use of a 9mm filter. All four shapes are available in the three different versions: Smooth light brown surface, sandblasted surface and in a most natural variety also with a smooth surface.

The company’s new Opus collection appeals due to its straight classic form and its embedded ring of 925 sterling silver at the end of the stem, which is lovingly adorned. Whether with a smooth finish or in artistically handcrafted rustic finish, these pipes with their slim stems demonstrate style consciousness and good taste. Including a brown leather carrying case with zipper.

Toque Snuff

At its launch nearly three years ago Toque Snuff tentatively dipped a toe into the traditional English nasal snuff market with its SP-type Toque Original. Since then interest in the time-honoured way of snuffing tobacco has grown and Toque Snuff now has a range of over 30 different snuffs ranging from fruit flavours to traditional floral snuffs and the very popular unusual flavors of peanut butter, absinthe, bourbon, and cheese and bacon! All snuffs are available in 25g and 10g tins as well as in snuff bullets.

With significant online sales in the US and Europe, Toque Snuff is looking forward to a positive future with rapidly expanding sales worldwide and would be interested to hear from potential distributers and retail outlets.
