Dunhill: Cumberland with Silver (5115) (2018)
Product Number: 002-015-4340
It's not often that Dunhill adds a unique creative touch to one of their standard shape chart designs. Typically, such deviation is reserved for pipes within the Quaint series. On the White Spot's shape chart, the "15" is a classic bent Pot, pairing a squat, muscular bowl to an angled transition, rounded shank, and bent stem. In this Group 5 rendition, though, the English workshop adds crisp ridgelines — the shank resembling that of a Bulldog's. It's the first time we've seen a "15" with such an accenting touch, and it's further commend by a band of sterling silver to contrast against the Cumberland series' stem and sandblast.
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
