    Who Makes the Real Dunhill Now?

    You are correct. I should know better than referring to a badly edited Wikipedia page and be more precise with regards to ownership of STG. Augustinus (tobaccoproducer since 1750) is the biggest shareholder and the next one is C.W.Obel A/S (from 1787). Both have made quality tobacco products in...

    Who Makes the Real Dunhill Now?

    Yes, but ‘STG’ started tobacco production in Denmark already in 1750, as ‘Augustinus factories’, whose present foundation still owns STG and some more.. See Chr. Augustinus Fabrikker - Wikipedia - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chr._Augustinus_Fabrikker

    Who In History Would You Most Like To Share A Bowl With?

    These days it would be more than fine to share a bowl and a beer with a not very famous but good old friend again😊 Like before the lockdown.

    Stanwell Jubilee 37 Question

    There were six ‘92 jub series pipes of which yrs is not included (see pic below) , so my guess, sofar, is yours is a ‘82, where 20 models were released. My preliminary study was just a look in my ‘82 and ‘92 Danish pipe magazines.

    Stanwell Jubilee 37 Question

    Jubilee years series, like eg 1942-82 and 1942-92 were often stamped on the pipes?

    This Is The Amazing World That Forum Member Workman Calls Home.

    Some of the people I admired most, during the many years I worked in the Danish ship, oil and airline industry, were the captains, other officers and airline managers from the Faroe Islands. I hope to some day visit and see the home of my distant country men, although we Danes may not be that...

    Anyone Driving Electric?

    My family has had several electric cars on monthly leases. A Nissan van, a BMW i3 and presently a Renault Zoe, which my 18 yo son now uses for daily commuting. My brother, who can afford it and needs more range, is a happy Tesla owner for 6 years. If you want to learn more about the advantages...

    LUNTING?

    I am a fast walker and bicyclist and would probably start coughing too much and look silly, if I smoked my pipe on my daily walks and bicycle rides, ha, hahahaupuffy

    Longest Break You've Taken from the Pipe

    I hope to some day be able to voluntarily let my pipes rest. Just for a day or two. Like many of you tough guys, who often inspire me It should only be a hobby, when time and place permits. My body and brain do however not like that thought. It's awful enough at work these days, when you have...

    Have Difficulties Finding Group 2 Sized , Straight Billiard Pipes

    This Chacom is a nice little pipe and its even got an ebonite stem puffy I bought one myself two years ago. Not a Dunhill however, as the bite is too thick (but can be modified of course) and smokes hot, if not very careful. Tastes good from first bowl and it seems well made. Danes have...

    Favorite MacBaren Tobaccos?

    Enjoyed the few HH series I tried. Three Nuns and Capstan are still among my favourites, also after HH/MB got the license. Have not tried their St. Bruno or Savinelli blends yet.

    Your Heritage, Your Pipe Smoking

    I may perhaps be described as an old snobbish anglophile bastard, when it comes to pipes and tobacco but genetically I am just an inbred Dane, smoking mostly Danish pipes and tobaccos, many of which have anglophile names though. I am not ‘celebrating’ my heritage by smoking on special days. I do...

    Purchase of New Dunhill (Whitespot) Concerns and Questions

    @MSO. Thanks for your historical lesson and sorry if you may now think I too often oppose you😊 But comparing todays prices for North European high quality pipes to professional cameras, as you mention, then Dunhills suddenly appear ‘affordable’ today😊 The cameras, you could compare to, are the...

    Purchase of New Dunhill (Whitespot) Concerns and Questions

    :)YMMV. I would agree, if only you could buy affordable new French or other pipes with at least stems like Dunhill’s. Today most stems on ‘affordable’ pipes, from most manufacturers, are either too fat or made by LEGO. Indian pipes are perhaps the most traditional and authenticpuffy
