I received my pipe and was pleased with the quality for the price. One note on preparation of this pipe (commonly understood among Peterson owners) is the dye in the bowl. Before loading your first bowl, take a cloth or paper towel and soak it in rum or whiskey and give the bowl a good cleaning. The dye will come off after a few wipings. The reason I used whiskey (bourbon to be exact) is because I didn't want to use any solvent (food safe or otherwise) on something I intend on smoking from.
Once you let your pipe dry then go ahead and start your break in process. Honestly, I did not expect breaking this pipe in to be so easy. It only took a few puffs after the false start for all the ugly flavors to be gone. What I ended up with was a pipe that seemed to be fairly broken in and very smooth after the second bowl.
