Captain Black?
(an Orlik brand)

Alternate guess:
Charatan due to the rusticated shank treatment which was common to their sandblasts.
No, but good guess. This illustrates the drop off, not in internals or briar quality, but of finishing that happened with the old British stalwarts. One of my finest smokers, but not one of the best finished.
It's a lovely pipe, regardless.
Nice lighter, by the way!

That looks just like a Dunhill Cumberland finish.

LOL! No, it just looks exactly like a Dunhill Cumberland--especially from the mid to late '90's.

It's a Dunhill. I rarely like brindle or cumberland stems because the colors in the stem clash with the briar. But this finish from Dunhill is perfect for such stems. Perfect.
