Dunhill: Cumberland (5108) (2019) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-4377

Defined by a quarter bend and Bulldog bowl, Dunhill's "08" can take the form as either a Bulldog or Rhodesian depending on the shank's shaping. Here, this example presents the latter's rounded style, easing naturally into the curving heel. Continuing the softened motif, the bowl features a subtle ridgeline just below the tapered rim in place of beadlines. Muscular in hand yet quite genteel of line, it's an elegant composition, made more rugged by the Cumberland's sandblast and rustic color palette. Rendered here in hearty Group 5 proportions, its stoutness calls to mind the classic Bullmoose, specifically Dunhill's iconic "CK."

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."
