The Billiard may well be the most classic of English shapes on the chart. Dunhill has made this shape since the earliest days, and today's version is bulkier, as if raised on a beef and potatoes diet. The stain ranges from cooler reds to warmer oranges and mahogany, which highlights this piece's very impressive grain - every bit of a two-flame. Unsmoked, this pipe's every bit as new as it was in 2002 - but at a reduced price.
