Dunhill: Shell Briar with Silver (4226) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-4168
A hybrid of two lovable shapes, the Egg and the Oom Paul, this Dunhill "26" is the perfect union of the two classic shapes with its balanced weight and shapely profile. An affable jaw-hanger and the epitome of elegance.
The Shell Briar's addition to the Dunhill catalog was a pivotal moment in pipesmoking 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.- Kaz Walters
