English Estates: Dunhill Cumberland (5133) (2017) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-30597
The "33" is Dunhill's take on the classic bent Brandy shape. While most of the English marque's standard shapes remain quite consistent in design, the "33" can vary slightly in its bowl's taper and the heel being either rounded or flattened. This particular example is the most common — sitting on its base when loaded, with an elegant taper toward the smooth-polished rim. Presented here in Group 5 size, the bowl is substantial in hand and generous of chamber, while the quarter bend balances it out well when smoked hands free. Unsmoked.
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
