I am a big fan of the Peterson Pub pipe. I received a new one today and I noticed that the reservoir chamber is noticeably more shallow in the one that arrived today.

Will the more shallow rendition of the Pub Pipe make for a less dry smoking experience?

The dark brown pipe in the photo is deeper than the black rusticated.

It is grounds for a return?

From the photo, it seems they obviously missed a step in the System process which is boring the reservoir itself. Does that make it a Sytem pipe anymore? I doubt it. So I would return it based on this criteria.
And I would return it especially considering your pipe has a silver cap on it, which makes it much more expensive than a regular rustic.

Missed an entire step? I don't think that is accurate; the reservoir is shallower than another pipe he has, which is of concern.

think you need to look at the photo more closely.The well is definitely drilled,just not so deep.
No problems

None of my Petes have reservoirs, and they smoke well indeed. So, a smaller reservoir shouldn't be a problem.
