Now that's a pipe.
As part of the XL grade, this Dunhill is truly massive. The consistency of the grain in this pipe is remarkable. 360 degrees of tight straight grain covers the bowl - accented by rugged plateaus on the rim and end of the shank. Flip this pipe over and take a look at the heel to witness some truly beautiful birdseye. Complete with a jet-black saddle stem and a good mortise fit, if you've got some time, you'll find this bent Dublin will produce a comfortable, smooth smoke you can enjoy for hours.
