English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar (252) (F/T) (4S) (1963)

Product Number: 004-002-4917

This is one of the deepest blasts I've yet come across on a classic shape. Since the chamber was reamed larger (decades ago, probably), this feels about as hefty in the hand as a shell found while combing the coastal sands in Myrtle Beach while occasionally throwing hot dogs in the direction of annoying tourists eager to feed the sea gulls. The blast looks patent-deep and is oriented in one of my favorite grain patterns.
