“fanboy”? - I’d quote Beth Dutton, but will just say I don’t speak hipster internet.Hawkeye- you have twice now posted fanboy defenses of Morgan. Please show us all where a buyer of this $180 pipe was warned that it would arrive in a cheap plain white box (like a second-hand eBay purchase) and that the name Morgan (as appears above the listing on its website) would be nowhere to be found. That name adds value in the secondary market.
Have you ever seen the way a $179 Savinelli Miele (a far superior pipe in my opinion to a Morgan Workshop) arrives packaged? See photo. It’s the way an expensive pipe should be presented. Rest assured I’ll never buy another pipe from Morgan’s website, so you won’t have to defend it any more.
I want to support American pipe making but that industry has to step up to its European competitors, and frankly I’m not seeing it.
If it was that big of a deal you’d have returned it the minute you saw the white box of deception. It’s not that big of a deal.
