English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar (5128) (2015)
Product Number: 004-002-18095
With its squat, wide bowl, neat transition, and thick oval shank, this Dunhill "28" from 2015 is an excellent example of the marque's somewhat lesser-seen Diplomat shape — which is, essentially, the oval-shanked cousin to the Author. Presented here in Group 5 size, there's plenty of bowl to wrap your fingers around, while the gentle bend balances it out well when smoked hands free. It's been lent an even more classical style here in the Shell Briar finish, featuring tight, endless waves of rippling grain that emanate from the broad, low-set waistline and gradually creep up toward the rim.- Andrew Wike
