Like many other companies Hardcastle was a traditional family pipe business. In 1946 Alfred Dunhill bought the shares turning Hardcastle into a 100% Dunhill subsidiary. But until 1967 family management of the company retained a certain independence. Our today's pipe was made in the same style like many others Dunhill-Hardcastle pipes of this period. The pipe is beautiful, shining, collectable and can be smoked with a great pleasure!
