For a briar made more than half a century ago, this 1960 Dunhill "656" is in great condition. Of course, this bent Billiard was sent back to Dunhill in 1972 for something or another, but like taking your dog to the vet, every pipe needs a bit of care every now and then. Regardless, it's a fantastic piece featuring plenty of chamber, thick transition and shank, and a comfortable bent saddle stem. The slight bend offers a perfect view of the smoldering leaf within as you draw puff after puff from your favorite blend. Finished in the original Bruyere deep red stain, it's a classic number from a classic marque worthy of any collector's attention.
