Savinelli Roma 816 KS [defective lip slot]

Postby SidStavros » Mon Dec 14, 2015 10:26 am

I bought once this pipe from a US store,

but when i opened the box i saw that the slot was defective, was not in the centre of the lip but to the right! I was very angry and i throw it away, unfortunately i haven't kept the photo.I replaced the mouthpiece with another in a different colour and i hope that you will like it.

Here is the procedure step by step:

Off-centre draw holes/slots are something I recognise in some of my purchases. I'm never sure why this should be so, except in wondering whether the craftsperson was producing a large number of pipes at the same time and wasn't able to be as precise as intended.
Glad you made a fine job out of your dissatisfaction, Sid.

Thank you Steve! ;) This pipe shouldn't leave the factory and the store employee didn't check what he send to the customer.The manager of the store contact with me and the problem solved.May don't ever happen again to any pipe smoker.
