English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar (6101) (1993) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-35464

Rendered in hulking Group 6 size, this "01" Apple by Dunhill presents a venerably classic shape with a hefty physique. The bowl stands tall and upright, with thick, rounded walls that fill the hand snugly. A muscular shank transitions from the bowl and pairs to a tapered vulcanite stem. Accentuating this pipe's stature is a flattened underside, which allows it to stand with confidence. The stummel wears the iconic Shell Briar sandblast, granting this pipe a dark, rugged complexion for a definitively Dunhill look.

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.
