I'm looking for a classic-looking bulldog pipe on a somewhat acceptable price, around 100-150€. My absolute favourite is the Peterson Sherlock Holmes Squire, which is beautiful and within the price range. But thanks to my issues with Pete's quality, I'm looking for another producer's classical shapes. Bulldog, apple, rhodesian, author, something chubby. Are there any similar beauty on the market as Peterson's bulldog shape?

Sorry to hear you had issues with Petersons.
Savinelli 623 or 504... or the KSs... can’t go wrong!

@r, Thank you for the tip, most of my pipes are Savinellis - and all of them are excellent smokers but you know, variety is beauty. Are there other producers with good quality on similar price? Maybe some English?

I like Chacom's bulldogs. Perfectly shaped IMO and very reasonably prized.

Thanks, Workman. I have never thought about Chacom as perfectly shaped pipes, for me they are disproportionate. Unfortunately, not my taste. But it's true, they have very good prices.

Nevermind, I have found one. It seems that Brebbia has a solution for all of my wishes. :lol:

Not always.

I've not noticed bad quality among brands other than Dunhill, but if you want an English bulldog, barring estate pieces, you're likely looking at 200€+.

@Embers, all of those are Savinelli? :D
Dunhill is insanely overpriced in my opinion. Barring? Do you mean Barling?

Yep, all Savinellis. No, I meant barring. In case you weren't looking into estates and wanted new only.

Daniel7, allow me to suggest exploring BlakemarBriars.co.uk,and especially his DeLuxe and LitchBruyer Line ups,those represent traditional shapes and good value+ shipping costs does not hurt being some 7 £

Speaking of Dunhills(or White spot pipes if You like)can't argue they sure are today something overpriced but if they all smoke that beautifully like this my recent brand new Ring grand canadian then be it so,had I more money to spent I might consider having another but this is very unlikely to become reality now,

You might try looking for an old GBD estate on eBay. I may be mistaken but weren't they the originator of the Bulldog shape? Definitely one of my favorites shapes. Easy to hold with thick walls for providing a cool smoke.

I have a Blakemar bulldog that I really like. The price is in your range so it's worth consideration. Blakemar is also very active with the Pipe Club of London.

An older estate Comoy is the best route to go I think. You should be able to pick up two for your budget.
That Brebbia is nice but not a classic bulldog shape in my mind.

If you've found one you like, go with it! I like the smallish but nicely balanced Stanwell 32 ... so much I have two in two different finishes. Great flake pipe.

Thank you for all of you, I don't know why but I didn't even think about Blakemar - I checked Northern Briars, but not Blakemar. Their bulldog is exactly what I was thinking about, thank you!

I'm trying to be as short as possible. I wanted to buy a bulldog from Blakemar Briars but they didn't have on stock the colour which I wanted to buy. So after that I almost convinced myself that a lighter colour would be even better from Blakemar bulldog when I found something else and I fell in love with it. Not classical, not English, but bulldog:








Damn my nordic taste. It is a Nørding of course. It will feel itself home in Iceland I guess.

Yes, I bought it :oops:
