English Estates: Dunhill Cumberand (4145) (2020) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-30501
Dunhill's "45" shape is affectionately known as the "Don" and is often confused with its sibling, the "44" or "Duke" design. While both feature a cylindrical, flat-heeled, Poker-like bowl, the Duke lacks a shank, the mouthpiece and fuselage-style stem simply fitting straight into the lower bowl. In contrast, as seen here, the Don features an abbreviated shank and mount-style stem arrangement. Long and languidly bent at the stem, its bowl is canted forward and sits sturdily, making for a reliable desk pipe and offered here in versatile Group 4 size.
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
