English Estates: Dunhill Shell (31CY) (1976) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-33351
This timeless Billiard from Dunhill is a classic rendition of the shape chart standard, featuring a stout bowl at the fore of a slim, round shank and tapered vulcanite stem. Dressed in the English marque's Shell Briar sandblast, the stummel boasts plenty of engaging texture for the fingers to explore. Unsmoked.
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.-Gabriel Bass
