Dunhill: Collector Shell Briar Bent Dublin (HT) (2018)
Product Number: 002-015-4422
This bent Dublin is a large pipe, on par with Dunhill's 800-series pipes, and as part of the Collector series, it was hand-turned and shaped creatively, not ascribing to Dunhill's standard shape chart. The rim is broad and wavy, marked by peaks of plateau, while the bowl's forward cant and pronounced heel add dynamism and momentum to the profile.
The Shell Briar's addition to the Dunhill catalog was a pivotal moment in pipe smoking 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
