    FS: Dunhill Patent Shells and A Few Others (07.24.2019)

    Got the 1932 Dunhill biliard yesterday. I've been smoking myself into a coma since. : ) It's a beautiful pipe, restored by LightMyBriar to like-new condition, gorgeous sandblast with grain that stands out, as Steve put it, like dragon scales. And now I know what the legendary smoke from a...

    Oh, that is how to send a PM. I like the Dunhill billiard very much, just what I am looking for. What size is the chamber, and could I see more photos? Much thanks.

    How does one make a PM to you? The new design of the site is a bit confusing. Can you tell me more about the first black billiard?

    Dunhill

    Thanks for your input, gents. I haven't seen a classic English sandblasted black Dunhill billiard yet, but I will keep your advice in mind -- approach with caution.

    Wessex Pipes?

    Got the Wessex today; clenched well, lightweight, nice big chamber, and smokes beautifully. Let's hope it son's burn out.

    Wessex Pipes?

    Sounds good. The Wessex is an author, reasonably priced. I've never had an author before and wanted to try out one without blowing the bank. Thanks, gents.

    Polyurethane Coating?

    I get the impression that if I can't live with this particular pipe with less than its original shiny coat, I should use shellac. It sounds like the safe choice.

    Oral Fixation

    I never bite so hard where I've required softies, and I know my teeth are not the best. Hmm. However, I almost always use acrylic, unless unavoidable.

    Wessex Pipes?

    I saw a nice Wessex Author on eBay, but have never heard of the marque before. Anyone have any thoughts?

    LOTR Churchwarden Pipes

    In examining eBays collection of churchwarden pipes, I noticed a lot of Lord of the Rings pipes. Who actually makes these pipes, and are they worthwhile?
