Dunhill: Cumberland (3108) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-4445
Dunhill's "08" shape designation can either denote bent Bulldog or Rhodesian — the latter found here on account of the rounded shank. This Group 3 rendition is forward-sweeping and low-set, the shape's characteristic beadlines set just above the transition and close to the rim. The curvature of the heel is consistent and informs the bowl's for and shank's curve, making for a cohesive composition that aligns with design's classic standards.
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
