Long Altinok Lead-Times?

I've heard a lot of good things about smoking a Meer, so I'm probably over-reacting a little bit on the longer than normal lead-time, but come on, I'm jonesing like a kid at Christmas...

I ordered a new Altinok pipe about a month ago, and it's still listed as a 'carving in progress'. According to their website, they try to ship out all orders within a month, but when I sent an them an e-mail to find out the expected ship date, the response I received was that it is still being carved (with no estimate of a ship date ). Has anyone else run into these long lead-times?

Thanks

This isn't a review, this thread would probably get more attention over in the General Pipe Forum.

I don't know if your pipe had any silver on it, but Sinan posted a while ago that he was having trouble getting it from his supplier. I don't know if that has been resolved yet, or if there is a back log of work because of it.

No, I didn't order one with he silver band, but my buddy did and his took 8 weeks to arrive... I'm hoping that mine won't take that long.

The good news is it will be worth the wait. I've never heard anything but praise for his pipes.
