Dunhill: Shell Briar with Silver (3407) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-4332
The "07" Prince from Dunhill comes in both a bent and straight version, with the former offered here to present an elegant downward turn that also balances the form when clenched. Such shaping draws the eye forward to the bulbous bowl perched on the end in Group 3 size. It's here presented in the Shell Briar's sandblast and wears a band of sterling silver, cementing the piece's elegant appeal and calling to mind Dunhill's Dress finish, but with a rugged texture afforded the stummel.
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.-Truett Smith
