English Estates: Dunhill Cumberland (41101) (1979)
Product Number: 004-002-30339
A rather rugged presentation of Dunhill's "10" shape in its Liverpool form (the other being the longer-stemmed, Bing Crosby style of smoker), this Cumberland keeps things simple without any accent but provides a more than usual amount of texture, as far as modern-day Dunhill sandblasts go. The grain around the bowl provides a wealth of stimulation in hand, with blasted birdseye peppering both flanks quite handsomely. If you're a fan of texture and classic shapes, this one is hard to pass up.
When Alfred Dunhill released his patented Shell Briar, he forever changed the pipe-smoking world at large. Dunhill has often been credited with being the first to offer sandblasted pipes (arguably the most popular finish today), and the Cumberland finish further displayed Dunhill's innovative spirit. Well received after its release in 1979, the Cumberland series was named for the English marque's warehouse on Cumberland road, and the line's signature, brindled vulcanite stem became so iconic, the warmly striated material is now referred to simply as "cumberland."-Truett Smith
