    Hey guys,

    I stumbled on this pipe and was wondering if anyone could ID it for me:

    Yeah, sorry, but all I can tell you so far is that it's a straight, rusticated, dark-stained billiard-ish pipe. Probably a vulcanite stem, but possibly something different.

    Yeah I figured it would be a long shot but I figured if anyone could figure it out it would be you guys. I don't own this pipe; I just saw the picture and thought it was amazing. I would buy it but I'm sure it's long gone. Do you guys know who makes black, sandblasted straight billiards? I would prefer something under $100 but wouldn't mind going a bit over.

    Here's a couple of Savinelli's different sizes for much less:

    http://www.smokingpipes.com/pipes/new/savinelli/moreinfo.cfm?Product_ID=84366

    and here's a Stanwell for less than 90:

    these are just from one site, I searched for "Billiard" and came up with tons, shop around and see what's out there! (and no, I don't work for that site, it's just where I generally look first for selection, then price compare.)

    Thanks for the recommendations guys! I'll definitely be looking at Savinellis and Stanwells. The only briar pipe I own is an old Sav which has been serving me quite well. I have been interested in trying an acrylic stem though Stanwells are definitely in contention too.

    Anyone else have some other pipe makers to recommend?

    Have to check with Jan. Not sure what he's asking these days, but I'm sure they're still a pretty good value. I think mine was only ~$50 when I bought it ten years ago. Don't remember what the exchange rate was back then though either...

    It's a 1962 Dunhill Shell Briar, Group 4. The stem has been replaced by a non-professional, so there's no dot. The stem replacement cost $20. The pipe is worth $102.57, unless it was formerly owned by Mr. Bruce Springsteen, but it doesn't look like one of his.

    Next?

    I looked at the picture a little bit more and it looks like it does have a white dot. I don't know if anyone else can make it out but I'm pretty sure there's a white dot there. That means I'll never be able to afford it :(

    By the way, how could you tell it was a Dunhill and the year it was made?

    Please excuse me; I was playing the fool. Well, maybe not playing, but being.
    It may well actually be a Dunhill, I too see the ghost of a dot in the enlarged photo. If you'd like to have a Dunhill, don't despair-- they go for $100 and even a little under on Ebay sometimes. I have two that I got that way, and they were cheaper than I expected them to be. One of the two is quite a good smoker, and the other is amongst the worst pipes I have, so no need to be impressed by the brand name. :)
