English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar (251) (F/T) (3) (R) (1970)
Product Number: 004-002-18684
Every pipe smoker's rotation should have at least one, if not a couple Billiards, in my opinion. Aside from being the penultimate classic shape (second only to the Cutty), it's just one that's hard not to love, and often a solid one to use a standard for what constitutes a 'good pipe'. This Group 3 Dunhill "251" from 1970 is the epitome of the classic English iteration of the shape, and is presented here as part of the marque's prestigious Root Briar line. As expected, the briar is flawless and there's a wealth of beautiful birdseye to admire along the flanks.- Jeffery Sitts
