Thanks a lot for this excellent video! They make it look so easy.... we all know it isn't child's play to make a pipe!
They made a Dunhill Dubilin...... We need a drooling smiley!
I like how after the stummel comes off the lathe she takes .7 seconds to say "the pipemaker finalizes the shape by hand" and then glides right along
That particular episode of How's It's Made, was on the Science channel last night.....way too short, but still good.
I'm still waiting for the 'How's it's Made: Babies' segment...my wife still hasn't told me.
Nice pipe piece. I'm suprised they aired it, mainly thanks to the anti's.
They do make it sound easy by trimming procedures from the film. I wish it was as easy as they make it look we could all make a beautiful Dunhill like that then.
Thanks for that video.
I didn't know Dunhills were still hand-made.
'Making a statement at the country club' I love how they are alluding to the fact that a smoking pipe is for display purposes only.
Yeah, and only the wealthy country-club set would engage in the pretentious act of smoking such an uppity thing.
Those crazy upper-class gentleman. Eat the rich!
Only after stealing their Dunhills. And their Scotch.
I don't think that smoking a Dunhill at the country club would make as much of a statement as smoking a cob...
great little video
I smoke my Dunhills only in my garage. Maybe the tools get jealous.
Most excellent! Thanks for that vid..
Awesome video, that looks like so much fun.
I like how they say the white spot is only to let you know that the stem is the right side up instead of a trademark by the maker.
Originally Alfred Dunhill came up with the idea to put that white dot because his customers were having trouble telling which side was up on their stems and later it became a trademark, or at least that is the myth.
