Dunhill: Cumberland (5215) (2017)
Product Number: 002-015-4083
Dunhill's "15" bent Pot is a classically English take on the pipe chart standard shape, the bowl a touch shorter than a normal Billiard and the chamber surrounded by thick insulating walls. Such a squater, stouter bowl design makes for a more muscular disposition up front and is continued through the heel, transition, and shank; it also results in a chamber of more square dimensions for those who prefer broader chambers, rather than those of deep, slender proportions. Here, the solid form is dressed in the sandblasted Cumberland finish.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." -Truett Smith
