Dunhill: Cumberland (2109) (2018)
Product Number: 002-015-4192
No matter its Group size, Dunhill's "09" Canadian is a lesson in beautiful proportions that scale well no matter the piece's overall size. In fact, the proportional relationship between bowl and elongated, oval shank in this particular offering makes it difficult to discern the exact size by the pictures alone. It is, in fact, one of Dunhill's smaller iterations — coming in Group 2. Especially noteworthy is the consistent curve followed by both the transition and heel, balancing the piece pleasantly. It's all dressed in the dark sandblast and namesake stem of the Cumberland line.
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
