I just received mine today and mine also has a crack in the joint that holds the mouth piece. I ordered it without the logo and received one with (I wanted one without as I prefer the no logo version). The free down stem I received with the order was also rough. I understand it was free but come on...there's only slits on one side of it and it's not even the right size. I'm really bummed out about this. I sent same an email regarding it, so I'll update when I hear from him. Other than that it seems like a nice piece. Looks a lot better in person than in the pictures.
