    I commissioned two pipes earlier this past summer. One was from the Czech Republic (JanPipes), which arrived on schedule and is a very beautiful looking and smoking pipe. The other was from the UK and I got bad news on today.

    I was told the UK pipe might be done "by the end of summer" or "by the end of the year". At summer's end, I emailed the maker and he indicated he had sent me an email (never received) and w/o response sold the pipe to someone else. He did offer to make another and said it should be ready before Christmas.

    I got an email today saying the pipe was ready, and to "check the price on line". We had settled on a price previously, so was curious. I checked his website and the pipe was $100 more than I was quoted. When I inquired, he mentioned that it was larger, and more fancy than what I had ordered (it was). He offered free shipping and some toby, but alas, I've decided to not accept.

    The fancier, larger pipe is just a bit larger than what I think I would like and does not look quite as expected. I loved his previous pipe completed at the end of summer. I now have PAD withdrawel. :sick:

    I hope Sas can help me feel better next month.

    Sure. Tell ya what. Let's agree on a price now, and then a month from now I'll raise it by only 50 bucks. Now how's that for service?
