bah, I am still a sucker for a Dunhill when I have too much cash around:

I usually buy them new out of Al Pascia in Italy because they are so much cheaper in Europe, but this guy looked good, I like the 03 shape, and it was not priced too crazy, so....

Beautiful pipe there, ratatosk! I've always wanted a Dunhill. Let us know how she smokes!

Thanks boys. Pipe showed up yesterday and appears to have been barely smoked at all. I did the traditional Prince Albert first bowl, but this thing does not need any break in. That is consistent with my experience with other recent Dunhill White Spots (this one is 2014), they are using a coating that takes care of everything with one bowl. The smoke gets better as you add bowls, but there is no initial struggle with the strange tastes or excess heat that led to all of the traditional break in rituals.

So this is my 14th Dunhill, 7 of which were bought new. Worth the money if you can swing it, just take care of them and they will go on forever.

Good recommendation here. Interesting re the break-in process and the White Spot coating. Wonder what they do to it...
