Hardcastle pipe dating taylor hicks dating anyone
Collected all over the world for nearly a century, Dunhill pipes were what catapulted the name into a brand synonymous with quality and excellence for a large variety of men's accessories, clothing, and other items. Finishes are smooth or sandblasted in only a few colors, and stems are still hand-cut from black vulcanite rod or red/black Cumberland with tenons turned from the same stock.Collected all over the world for nearly a century, Dunhill pipes were what catapulted the name into a brand synonymous with quality and excellence for a large variety of men's accessories, clothing, and other items.Later in the 70's I believe, they were produced as Parker-Hardcastle . The factory that Dunhill Manufacturing uses today was the Parker-Hardcastle factory because it was the most modern. Ok so explain why Parkers made in the 50's or earlier were better than today's.I have 3 Hardcastles made in the mid 70s which are great smokers. That means you understand both to a sufficient extent to explain.I can take away from this that the name 'Cadogan' then is not some technical descriptive of architecture concerning a Pipe but a geographical reference to ? Hello Folks, I was wandering around cupojoe's website today, looking for good deals on new pipes, and came across Parker pipes... I have done a search on here with minimal results, but I would like to hear from anyone that owns/have owned a Parker on their experiences...I think the real question at hand is, if we stuck you, Rusty, and Kyle in a room and locked the door, what would we find the next morning when we unlocked and opened the door. Nothing better in my mind than Royal Blend in one of my pot shapes (2 Pre-Trans Barling pots and 1 Wilke Pot). Am really getting to appreciate straight Virginia's more and more BTW, the Pot shape is a nice one for Va's I'm finding out as well.It's my second most fave shape i own, next to my Bulldogs . I've looked on thier site and they look to have some interesting blends for sure Have to say that the days of 'bac "... I like a little more in the nuanced and smooth side smoking wise.
It has the Latakia, Va's, and Yenidje that Royal Blend has, plus some Perique and Kentucky.
At that price, it looks like it would be a good one. In the vintage pipes thread you said something different...
I never stated that Parkers made in the '50s or earlier were better.
Something I noticed in an "E" bay offering is the phrase "Pre Cadogan"?
I have noticed that phrase with Comoys as well as Dunhills What does that phrase mean?
I have 3 Hardcastles made in the mid 70s which are great smokers. Mine also does not have the silver band around the stem. Depending on it's age, most Parkers are VERY good pipes. So as the market for pipes shrunk they consolidated pipe manufacturing back into one factory. All pipe lines were made there for a long time and not in the distant past, recently. So what constitutes a 'Dunhill factory system' and where do you think the Parkers are made today?
