    Who do you feel is the best seller of Dunhill shell Briar? I'm searching for a classic shell briar, with the kind of sandblast that reveals the kind of grain that resembles concentric circles, such as that of a seashell. Thx.

    There is no beauty without some strangeness in proportion.

    Not all Dunhill Shells have the concentric circles. Look for a Dunhill Shell Ring Grain.

    I don't believe they blast them as good as they did back in the 1930s. Those are the real Shell blasts. I have a couple of them, the only ones that have that seashell blast texture.
