Honestly, I'm almost relieved I'm not happy with it. This is only the second time I've paid over $200 for a pipe and I went back and forth for almost two weeks before pulling the trigger. While I'm no expert on pipe making, there is a healthy fingertip's worth of depth in the chamber under the draught hole. S.P. Was very accommodating and candid but I heard a couple of things that made me wonder. The first was about how it passed both caminetto and smokingpipes QC tests, and also that once they receive it back, it will go back up for sale at the same price. I don't know, those decisions are above my pay grade. I'm just happy that for once, I had the discipline to actually think about it before lighting up. I guess that's what happens when I pay over $100 for a pipe. On a side note, has anyone else had issues with caminetto? Because if made and priced right, their take on the hawkbill still catches my eye. That is, assuming that my latest purchase was an anomaly. Thanks again everyone for helping me step back, take a deep breath, & save $320.
