English Estates: Dunhill Ring Grain with Silver (4102F) (9mm) (2013) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-37068

A thoroughly classic English pipe, this bent Billiard from Dunhill boasts a seamless, sweeping profile, the elongated, bent stem ensuring it should hang effortlessly from the jaw. There's a good deal of sinuousness here that the eyes are sure to appreciate, with plenty of curves through the bowl as well to ensure a comfortable feel in hand. Rendered in Group 4 size, this "02" is a balanced and delightfully sinuous pipe that is primed for easy clenching or travel carry. Dressed in the crisp, inky sandblast of the Shell Briar finish, this pipe has earned the Ring grain designation for its excellent display of the eponymous grain. Additionally, this is an "02F," meaning it's drilled to accommodate 9mm filters.

Having earned the English marque's prestigious Ring Grain designation, this Dunhill piece wears a particularly choice iteration of the Shell Briar sandblast — displaying stunning waves of ring grain across the stummel. 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.
