The Canadian shape is one of the more masculine on the classic English chart. This Dunhill ODA is a prime example. A large, capacious chamber, thick, elongated oval shank, and jet-black tapered stem lend this number an unmistakable profile of jutting masculinity. While not a product of the marque's patented double blasting, the dark sandblast of this Shell Briar has still brought out a good amount of texture, without compromising the smooth, simple lines of the older Canadian shape. Overall: a nice profile, a stable sitter, and in perfectly serviceable condition - especially for a pipe that's been around for nearly half a century.
