Sorry to hear of your experience, Sid, but I feel that you're getting a bit hung up on nationality again! :|

World War I, Western Front around Christmas 1914 aka "Christmas Truce". The photo is from a PC war game but the event was real.

If the seller was from Russia or Thailand or Mexico etc i would wrote the same. Not only i paid 20 euro for that "intermediary bank" in turkey but i paid another 4 euro today for transfer the rest of the money which means the 85 euro pipe cost me 120 euro. Otherwise the maker would start to make my pipe and i could loose all my money! Shouldn't not protest for this kind of blackmail?
If i was relying 100% in nationality i would had 7 meerschaum pipes + 4 meerschaum inserts bought from turkey and keep in mind that all of my ancestors from my fathers side were living there from 660 BC till the 1922 AD so if it was "personal" i wouldn't be a customer of this guy for years.

Ps: in the past they had Paypal but now their government censored this way of payment.

Rather cooler here, Sid, around 3 degrees! Sleet during the night with snow on its way later... St. Bruno Flake in a Northern Briars rusticated Liverpool. I could do with some of your warm sunshine at the moment.

Sid, naming the seller and bank instead of their country wouldn't have left me with the same impression. If I misinterpreted your feelings towards "Turkish," then, for my part in that, I apologise.

Good morning from Greece, we have sun here and 15°C but to be honest i miss the snow that we had those days in my village as a kid.

I am smoking Torben Dansk No 8. Take a look what Greek coffee my wife brought me, no matter if happen by luck those 2 layers look great.

My grandfather's house is there, my parents have visited this country 3 times, i have a leather jacket bought from turkish store, i have turkish meer pipes or pipes with meer inserts bought from there. If i see the things exclusively on Nationality [since i served in the Army] then i would not even post the word "turkish" in a forum and i would have bought anything from there.
I didn't mention the name of the maker because he said isn't his fault and also insists that the turkish bakn took no commission, so who took my money? An "intermediate bank" which is there but nobody knows the name.
"No more money-no pipe" this isn't a kind of blackmail? So i am still waiting for what's going to happen with that pipe. :roll:
