the discussion in the take ze pipe apart thread prompts this , so here goes... I have seen, handled and own Danish high grades with flaws. bad drilling, not passing a cleaner, fills, stem buttons thicker on one side than the other, unusually heavy briar for size, extremely bad tasting briar and so on. I once bought a very expensive pipe from a reputable internet site, once I took it apart I was shocked. I returned the pipe, never to buy another. anyone else experience this?
