Got the new P&C catalog in the mail today, second to last page there's a Grabow add. And it says "their presmoking process in which a specialized machine actually smokes each pipe, provides a head start on breaking it in"
I thought they were just carbon coated now and not "presmoked". Am I just stupid or does P&C need to get their facts straight?

I didn't think they presmoked anymore but you'd think they do from the wording... or am I misreading it. Sorry for the quality.

I'm in full agreement that they don't but to the uninformed, someone would think that they do. At least if I were going to get one for my first Grabow, I would have thought it was presmoked.

I let Dan Chlebove know about that. He's going to tell the guy who writes up the ads for the catalog that they have it wrong.
