English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar (5226) (2013) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-31582
Generous of size, deep of bend, and spacious of chamber: this is Dunhill's "26" Oom Paul, in a nutshell. Of course, there's more to it than that; this full-bent jaw-hanger could be your faithful hands-free companion, perfect for a long smoke. Dressed in the rugged, textured finish of the Shell Briar sandblast and paired to a black vulcanite stem, the composition is simple and refined.
The Shell Briar's addition to the Dunhill catalog was a pivotal moment in pipe-smoking history. Before 1917, pipes with sandblasted finishes had never been made, and Alfred Dunhill's innovative mind created arguably the most popular finish for pipes today when he unveiled the Shell Briar. With its dark, reserved color palette and delightful texture, it's no surprise that it's still wildly popular over a century later.-Angela Robertson
