I recently did a video about making the stem on this pipe, then realized if I sent it back without taking a full set of pipe-centric photos in addition to the stem-centric ones that cap the video, I'd regret it. 838's are RARE.
So I did. :mrgreen:
Dunhill's 838 shape perfectly captures the concept "tastefully outrageous" imo. Very edgy in 2018... imagine the reaction they got in stuffy-conservative 1954!

No white dot required to show orientation of that stem is required.

Georgeous pipe!

Another fantastic pipe posting! And here I thought the squat bulldog was a recent phenomena. Gorgeous, stunning shape. Perfect. Part of the reason why I love it is its length, which although it looks longer than the usual bulldog, probably isn't.

What a CLASSIC! Outstanding work on that one!..........

Edgy to say the least. I get that "atomic-age" vibe from this shape, although the shape probably pre-dates that.... (T'was before my time, so IDK....... ) The whole flying saucer, space age thing comes to mind.

I love this shape, and I was a diehard straight billiard fanboy for a LOT of years.......... thanks for posting this!........ :puffy:

838's are all dead-on 6.5"
Big, but not too big; long, but not too long. :lol:

What's the deal on the white dot in the stem? Those that are knowledgeable will know the stem is replacement and that the dot is not original, although to me having the manufacturer's mark was a sign of originality, so in this case a sign of a faithful reproduction?

Uh, stem is straight as hell. Don't need a pipe like that. Go ahead and keep it.
