This Sleek One-Hitter Let’s You Add a Clean Filter Whenever You Want

Even with the technological leaps and bounds that the cannabis industry has experienced in recent years, it’s still hard to beat the taste and sensation of smoking flower. Except, possibly, for the messy, unhealthful and, if you’re using a garish glass pipe, unstylish aspect of it.

Enter the SilverStick, a sleek and attractive one-hitter pipe that unscrews to allow the easy placement and removal of cotton filters. Though not bulky, SilverStick’s bowl is large enough for four-to-six hits, which is about two or three times as many as a typical one-hitter allows. Made of aircraft-grade alloy, the three-inch-long piece, come with a plastic cap to keep smells at bay.

It comes with 25 filters made of 100 percent biodegradable cotton. The filters clean the smoke of tar and gunk while preventing any bits from making their way into your mouth. They are free of chlorine, bleach and any other chemical; they’re just cotton fibers bound by a super thin piece of paper. When you remove one you’ve used, you’ll get a look at the goop it has cleaned from the smoke. For that reason, and the smoother pull it offers, we bet you’ll be glad you have the option the piece gives you to pop one in.

For $25-$75, you can get the SilverStick plus a full set of good-looking accoutrements. Smaller than a pack of cigarettes, the full set fits into a U.S.A.-made Horween leather pouch that will have you smoking in style. The cases come in colors like “typewriter black” and “toasted brown.” Along with the one-hitter, pouch and filters, the set contains a stainless steel poker that’ll have you efficiently cleaning out the chamber and packing bowl after bowl.

Cleaning the piece is a snap. Just place it in a small bowl with isopropyl alcohol, wait 30 minutes, then wipe it out with a Q-Tip or paper towel and rinse it out with water.

If you’re serious about your smoking steez — and we bet you are — take a look at SilverStick’s gorgeous dugout cases. Made of materials like zebrawood, cocobolo, black walnut, and bubinga, the dugouts have two compartments, one for our extra filters or perhaps a second strain.

You can now stream the original Shōgun miniseries — here’s how
You can now stream the original Shōgun from the '80s!
Yoko Shimada and Richard Chamberlain in Shogun.

After making a tremendous debut earlier this year, FX and Hulu's Shōgun is easily one of the top TV series of 2024. In addition to being critically acclaimed, Shōgun is such a massive hit that FX is already planning additional seasons to what was originally a standalone adaptation of James Clavell's 1975 novel. It was also one of Hulu's most-streamed series of the year, so it's understandable why FX wants to keep the show going.

This isn't the first time that Shōgun has taken audiences by storm. The original TV adaptation of Shōgun from 1980 was widely considered one of the greatest miniseries ever made. It also had the distinction of being the first and only U.S. production to be filmed entirely in Japan. At the time the new Shōgun premiered earlier this year, the original miniseries wasn't available to stream. But thanks to the new adaptation, fans can now find the 1980 incarnation of Shōgun on one of the major streaming services.
Where is the original Shōgun available to stream?

The White Lotus season 3: Everything we know
Get up to date on everything we know about The White Lotus season 3.
The cast of The White Lotus season 1.

When the first season of The White Lotus premiered in 2021, few could have suspected that it would become one of the best shows on HBO and Max. Even series creator Mike White considered The White Lotus to be a six-episode one-off story. But viewer response to this black comedy miniseries was so strong that White and HBO realized that they had a hit on their hands. That's why the series was quickly renewed, and it premiered on HBO and Max in 2022 just a little over a year after the first season.

The White Lotus season 3 was confirmed in November 2022, but unfortunately, the hiatus between seasons is going to be over two years. Each of the first two seasons featured an almost completely different cast of characters, although Jennifer Coolidge and Jon Gries reprised their characters in season 2 to establish some connections with the previous season. There aren't currently a lot of details known about the third season. Regardless, we're sharing everything we know about The White Lotus season 3, which includes most of the cast, the theme and setting, as well as when fans can expect the show to return.
