I thought that I was done buying GBD bulldogs, but this Militaire grade pipe really intrigued me.  It was shown last year, unrestored, on the GBD Collectors thread over on PipesMagazine.  After it was delivered, I realized that I didn't know much about the Militaire grade, only that this one is Pre-Cadogan and all appear to be sandblasted.  I thought that I overpaid, but the other Militaire sold earlier this year went for significantly more.  I was also pleased to find it only weighs 30 grams, easily the lightest GBD in my collection.  Kudo's to ebay seller "303_pipe_restoration" for the restoration work!

GBD really loved their square shanks. I have a smooth deluxe billiard with a square shank though it run flat instead of the 45* like this and the other one you posted.

Now that's a no nonsense purposeful looking pipe Al.

Nice score. Pleased the pricing suited too.

Agree, and with the convenience of a military mount. Nice one, Al.

When a "square" shank is turned 45 degrees, it's usually referred to as a "diamond" shank. When a Bulldog has a round shank, it becomes a Rhodesian, with a diamond shank, it's a Bulldog except for Dunhills which called ALL their Bulldogs with diamond shanks Rhodesians. That's Dunhill for ya !! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil BTW, AL, THAT;S one fine Doggie and a Tanshell finish to boot !! One of my faves !! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Thanks gents. This one has been a recent favorite, the light weight is a real plus and the stem feels great (so good, I'm surprised it doesn't have the "Hand Cut" stamp).
