Pad has hit hard this month. I had some expendable cash after Christmas & decided to splurge on a few pipes. One of them was a caminetto hawkbill. It's nice but, out of the 3 pipes I bought it's my least favorite, the most expensive($320), and the only one with a obvious defect. It's been drilled off center. How will this effect the smoking/mechanical properties? I'm wondering what I should do & am looking for advice, especially from the pipe makers in the forum. I bought it from smokingpipes and have not smoked it yet. Should I or could I ask for a discount? Should I send it back for a full refund? Or, should I just smoke it and not worry? Normally I would do the latter, assuming there were no mechanical issues, but $320 is a lot of money to me and it might be better spent on tobacco or....... Maybe even something nice for the family. So, what do you all think, issue or no? P.S. I'm including pics but don't think I can illustrate the drilling issue. You might just have to take my word on it.
