Dunhill: Cumberland Churchwarden with Bamboo (3613) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-4403
While it's well-known that Dunhill has produced bamboo-adorned pipes for decades, I'm always pleasantly surprised to come across one. The addition of bamboo always makes for a slightly organic aesthetic, contrasting the more austere English style the marque is famous for. That's manifested here in a Group 3-sized rendition of the "13" bent Apple, the shank extended with four knuckles of bamboo for Churchwarden length. While these more organically inclined pipes stand out from within Dunhill's portfolio, they're always paired with the marque's iconic finishes, in this case being the Cumberland 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
