Ah, but we Americans are a restless lot. We just don’t know when to leave well enough alone. So enamored had the U. S. market become of the four blue dots, the importer wanted to make sure they could be seen by everyone standing on each side of the smoker. Therefore Sasieni, reluctantly by some accounts, agreed to put four more dots on the right side of the stem.

This was an excruciatingly difficult procedure, even on the Four Dot, for each dot had to be placed just right in order to create the desired diamond shape, and on the Eight Dot, both sets had to be symmetrical. For all that, it is rare to find a an original Sasieni bit in which the dots are even the slightest bit off. This in itself bears testimony to the fastidiousness with which Mr. Sasieni applied his craft. It also makes it fairly easy to spot a fake Sasieni stem.

Oui, mais nous les Américains sommes des gens agités, nous ne savons jamais quand on doit s'arrêter. Aussi énamouré que le marché américain puisse être des quatre points bleus, l'importateur voulait être sûr qu'on pourrait les voir qu'on soit d'un côté ou de l'autre du fumeur. Par conséquent, Sasieni, à contre-cœur selon certains, accepta de mettre quatre points de plus sur le côté droit du tuyau.
    
Both the Eight Dot and the Four Dot were marketed in the U. S. during the pre-war years, with the Eight Dot fetching more money, even though both pipes used the same wood.
