    It arrived early today. After polished, it was perfect. So, what does FET mean?
    Dunhill Shell FET 24, Prince. WWII (1941/43) Pat. N°13414118/20.




    Thanks.

    I was using the direct dropbox link, that's why it did not work.

    Forciori, are you just a collector, or do you smoke them as well?

    They all look so clean and new!

    I use them all! Very carefully, but yes, I use it. I control the cake, I don't allow it to go beyond from 1mm.
    I also clean after each use with Paragon/Halcyon wax and Obsidian. But this Prince I haven't used yet.
    It arrived early today. I just cleaned and polish.

    No, Dunhill used to run a fertility clinic. It stands for Frozen Embryo Transfer.

    I know it isn't unique to Dunhill, but I really like the straight stem on the prince, most of which are slightly bent. It's a good shape and often a fine smoke.

    Forciori, where do you live and if I am not being rude, how old are you. I ask because in all the time I have been a member here, I have never seen a young gentleman have such a collection. Very impressive.
    Please keep the pics coming.

    Love Dunhills, older production and (newer ones with some reservations though)but obviously can't afford buying them,be it new or estates, I have now one from their 2017 with which I completely satisfied,despite the fact I had to band the fragile shank which got a crack recently when I was reinserting stem into it)My other 'higher ends are mainly Castellos which, in my opinion are very fine pipes with wonderful smoking characteristics ,but are expensive as well.

    forciori, That is pretty cool you are into their history that much. I am a dabbler in Pre Transition Barlings and 1960's Dunhill LB's. My main focus is on artisan made pipes with most of mine being made in No America.

    I had some Barling, but only pos-transition. =(



    I'd love to see yours!
