English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar (3110) (2019) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-33508
This Group 3 Liverpool from Dunhill offers a surprisingly lightweight and compact profile, despite featuring quite a deep chamber and hearty relative proportions through the bowl and shank. Elegant and arrow-straight of profile, this "10" beautifully exemplifies The White Spot's revered, traditional shaping style, from its firmly right-angled heel to its dressy palette and crisp sandblast. This is one pipe you'll find yourself reaching for again and again. 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.-Truett Smith
