Dunhill is a product of nature and the highly specialised skills of chosen
craftsman. Each pipe is fashioned from the finest quality briar and undergoes
more then 90 separate processes, spread over several months. Every stage of
production is strictly supervised and from this blend of care and expertise
comes the finest pipe in the world - Your Dunhill

Broken mouthpiece pegs and split stems
often result from trying to remove a tight mouthpiece from a warm pipe or by
knocking out a pipe an a hard surface. To avoid this, hold the briar stem and
knock the cool bowl against the palm of the hand.
Loose mouthpieces are often
caused by high moisture content of the briar, caused by "wet" smoking and can be
best avoided by using a pipe cleaner after every smoke.
