Dunhill: Shell Briar (3103) (2013)
Product Number: 002-015-3346
I was always fond of the number 3. I can't exactly put my finger on the reason, but it's a number that popped up frequently in my life — from jerseys to license plates, to themes in my own writing. I guess you could say, it spoke to me. Unsurprisingly, so does this Dunhill Shell Briar. An "03" straight Billiard from 2013, in Group 3 size, it's a classic shape in perfect proportions for my tastes — modest of size, yet still packing a respectable chamber. Of course, if you're not quite as keen on 3s as I am, there's still no arguing with that finish: a neat cross-cut pattern brought out by a light sandblast.
