I'd ask myself, Am I buying it because it's a Dunhill or just because it's on sale?
Do I like it's shape and color, is it the right size of pipe for me?
Do I need to spend $260 right now on something I can live without?

Although Dunhill's hit real low on my list of wants, specially when I can get
just as good or much better of a smoker at half or two thirds the price that is
also a much better look'in pipe in my eye. Wink
Besides Dunhill's are like buying most anything nowadays, your just paying for a name
and not quality.

you should check and see if they have a dunhill 5108 in smooth finish and if so let me know so I can order it lol. If you like the pipe you are looking at then buy it.

No, I don't like the shape or finish of the $260 pipe. It's also a bit smaller than what I normally buy. The price is right thoug.

The pipe I really like, a golden coloured bulldog, costs $510 (discounted price) and I will never pay that amount for any pipe.

If you DON'T LIKE the pipe in question, WHY are you even asking about buying it? Duh Twisted Evil Twisted Evil You DON'T BUY what you DON'T LIKE Twisted Evil Twisted Evil  At least I don't  Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Believe it or not, there ARE older shell Dunnies out there at that price or LESS so if a blasted Dunhill is what you WANT, take your time and you'll find what you WANT!!

Curiosity Hut....check there website, they've got a load of Dunhills and all are marked down by 25%. And all of them are old stock, old prices.  I've compared their prices with Smokingpipes.com, much cheaper.

www.curiosityhut.co.za

The owner, Freddie Eckley, is a very close friend of mine. You can ask him to send you info and tell him I gave you his name.

Are you wanting a NEW Shell Dunnie? If you want one that made the history and name for Dunhill, you want to look for Shell's made BEFORE the early '70s as these were made from old oil cured Algerian Briar which makes the BEST smoking and gnarly blasted pipes !! After this time period, Dunhill was not able to get and use this briar and went to Sardinian and Corsican Briar which did not blast as deeply as the old Algerian did. Here's a nice ODA sized Apple from 1962 which you might want to take a look at. Just an idea Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Thank you, my brother but......check the newest bid on that pipe! It's gonna sell for a lot of money.  But, I'm watching it and if it's not to high, I will make a last minute bid on it.

I've made an offer for a '63 billard Shell Briar and waiting for reply.

Yes, my bro', and I'm sour about it!  I tried "snapping" it and it did not work. My bid was for $172 (kplmpieter)  "in the open" to scare off other bidders.  I was hoping the "snap" would do it for me at under $200. Oh well, now I still have  R2,170 in my pocket! That's gonna buy me a LOT of tobacco in the new year.

I thank you for bringing it to my attention although I did not won it!! cheers
