    SP has Samuel Gawith

    Your information is incorrect. In a nutshell, Dunhill simply no longer wants to be associated with tobacco. The owners of McClelland wanted to retire, and did not wish to sell their brand. In neither case was it ever implied that these companies couldn’t stay in business had they desired to do so.

    Sutliff: African Queen (and a short-course on diction and grammar)

    Hey guys, it was all in good fungus. Too soon/late?

    Sutliff: African Queen (and a short-course on diction and grammar)

    Was it irony then that you used the word “pallet” when you should have instead used “palate”? :puffpipe:

    Tabaccheria Corti - New Sponsor Hello

    npod, would that be the Le Dune pipe you mentioned previously? It’s very nice. The Le Dune carving reminds me of Rich Lewis’s Armadillo finish. I’ve also had great experiences with two other Italian shops in recent months and the prices, the service, and the incredibly fast shipping are blowing...

    Tabaccheria Corti - New Sponsor Hello

    Just received the new Castello I purchased. The price as well as their service was excellent, and I would not hesitate to buy from them in the future. Very pleased to have had them brought to my attention.

    Estate Savinelli Extra 2007 - Meerschaum Bowl, or Reamed Bowl?

    That appears to be a 4005 shape. Hard to gauge condition from those two photos but it looks like the stem isn’t chewed up so that’s a plus. Also consider that since these are both 4 digit shape numbers, they are likely 60’s to early 70’s production, which might appeal to you. Lastly, from...

    Anybody Tried the Savinelli Flavored Pipes?

    I had a couple of the Vaniglia models several years ago. They had a slight vanilla flavor for the first few smokes but it faded quickly. I wouldn’t be concerned at all about the flavor lasting beyond a few bowls. As stated previously in this thread, it’s only intended to “ease” the break-in...

    Aristocob - Poor Customer Service

    Thanks for the laugh, wyfbane. Look, I don’t know where I gave any indication that I was experiencing any stress over the money; any stress at all for that matter. I’ve long been aware of the potential for misunderstanding one another in this form of communication, which partly explains why I...

    Aristocob - Poor Customer Service

    And for the record, I was being sincere in thanking you for pointing out my attempt to end debate. You’re one of the few forum members whose thoughts I actually value.

    I make a distinction between dissenting viewpoints and being insulted.

    Woodsroad, thank you. You’re right. Mods please do not close the thread. YouTube pipe community, let me have it.

    Aristocob - Poor Customer Service

    I take issue with you implying that I am being demanding beyond reason. You are inventing quotes that don’t apply at all to my handling of this situation. While I would hope to receive what I paid for, I never asked for a refund, only simple acknowledgment of the error. Four emails and now over...

    Aristocob - Poor Customer Service

    Well good luck with that. I still have received no response, though I’m sure they’ll readily take your money. :puffpipe:

    Aristocob - Poor Customer Service

    No, I did not text them. They state on their website that email is the more reliable method of contact. Sure it’s possible that all four of my emails got lost in their junk mail; the first two were direct replies to the shipping confirmation email I received from them, and two were sent directly...

    Aristocob - Poor Customer Service

    saltedplug: Agreed. This was my final move. If they happen to decide they want to make it right, that’s fine. I won’t hold my breath though.
