I've had a bit of an unpleasant experience with P&C recently, though I'm happy with the pipe I got. The Kendal Dark, which they didn't tell me was back ordered until the day the package was delivered, and didn't refund until then, either, has been cancelled. Marscigars.com has it in stock though. With affordable shipping. AND THEY STOCK THE ORIGINAL SHAG CUT VERSION! So I just placed an order for 8oz. We'll see this is! I cut my teeth on the shag, but I wasn't much "good" at smoking a pipe back then. I like the new, ribbon cut....but I kind of miss the shag. We'll see if it's as good as I remember, or if it's tough to keep it cool!
