Recently I had my ey on another Upshall. It was an estate that I could only look at in pictures. It was a "G", and nice--awsome grain. I took the bait, and it arrived today. I unboxed it, and WOW---gorgious tight grain. Also looking down into the bowl--hole is centered---BUT----when I attempted to pass a pipe cleaner no matter what I did---no go. When I removed the stem----WOW---where the smoke hole from the bowl meets the mortise it has been drilled WAY high, and to the right. I was astonished that a pipe like this would be like this. Graned the hole is PERFECT at the bottom of the bowl, but from stem through mortise---way off. I love the looks of this pipe, but the drilling has ne literally beside myself. I paid quite alot to aquire this pipe, and wonder----should I send it back????? SASQUATCH maybe as a pipe maker you can offer me some advice also-----PLEASE. Should I attempt to fix it, or send it back????????? I usually like to handle pipes prior to purchase---I took a chance, and am kinda on the fence.
