English Estates: Dunhill Cumberland Alphorn (HT) (XL) (2017) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-37237

This Alphorn by Dunhill is modeled after its namesake, a long horn instrument that originated in the Alpine mountains. Presented in XL-size, this piece measures over 13 inches long and boasts a bowl over two inches tall. Shape-wise, it features a tall, forward-canted, hand-turned bowl that tapers into a trim shank and a long, sinuously bent Churchwarden stem. The crisp Cumberland sandblast dresses the stummel and highlights gorgeous grain across the bowl and shank alike, its rustic complexion complemented by the stem's ruby hues.

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."
