    Not yet. But they did say it could be 2-3 weeks just to process the orders. Also may have gotten 'a few' more than they had first thought. ;)
    I figured i'd wait another week and send em a shout to get an update if there had been no further communication yet.

    I was thinking that the 2-3 weeks was for the carved bowls (I just got a regular one), but yeah...I'll wait another week before I shoot an email their way.:toast:

    Yeah...if I don't hear something soon...I'll start the process of figuring out how to get my money back (there's no cancel order option in paypal now because it's been over a month since I paid). I get that they were likely overwhelmed with orders, but they should have sent some kind of email out. i.e. "Due to the large amount of interest, it will be at least one month before all orders will be fulfilled" (or something along those lines).

    I sent them an email a few minutes ago. I'll post their response up.

    You guys gotta post pics when they arrive. I'm going to get one, but will wait till finances are inclined to do so.

    Most people processed their orders individually by emailing the company directly, so I wouldn't say that you missed anything. My advice though would be to wait and see how the existing orders pan out prior to placing your own.

    That's exactly what I'm doing, letting everyone else run the gauntlet to see what happens. If the outcomes are good, I'll order.

    Thanks for letting us know. I was thinking about emailing them myself, since it's been 3 weeks since order, but apparently they're not sending email notifications for shipping. So i'll bide my time. No hurries, no worries.

    Anyone else get theirs yet? I got a pipe that I ordered from England a full month after placing this order. No sign of this bowl yet. Figured I'd complain one more time for good measure. That usually makes stuff materialize in the mail box.:)

    I think they are slowly trickling out to the customers. It seems I might have been the first and fishnbanjo just received his. A few others have reported receiving them as well.

    I'd love to get a meerschaum bowl, but I wonder if I'd break it. On my way in the house a couple days ago, I dropped my falcon on our tile. Of couse, I just picked it up and went on my merry way, which is IMO an advantange to owning a falcon. I just dont see a meerschaum bowl recovering from that as well.....

    Why live in fear of something that may never happen? Buy it.
