Cardinal House Pipes Guarantee

It has been said over and over that you cannot be guaranteed that a particular pipe will be a good smoker, that there are mystical forces at work which, despite the maker’s best efforts, might still cause a pipe to smoke poorly. Pipe buyers have been making purchasing decisions on a “luck of the draw” principle. After all, once you’ve smoked out of a pipe, you can’t return it if it performs poorly, right?

Well, that’s all about to change!
