English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar ODA (806) (F/T) (1973) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-37412

Dunhill's "800" series of briars feature considerably larger renditions of classic shapes which have become some of the most collectible pieces from the English marque. As the "ODA" stamp denotes, this "806" is a scaled up version of the straight Apple, the relative proportions kept consistent but with extra muscularity afforded both the bowl and shank. With an abundance of chamber space and robust feel in hand, this piece is the perfect addition to any collection of hearty English classics, seen here wearing the crisp, jet-black Shell Briar sandblast.

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.
