Dunhill: Cumberland (5102) (2016) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-4452
Second only to Group 6, Dunhill's Group 5 is a large size designation, resulting in a deep chamber and, often, muscular and hearty proportions. The chamber is certainly generous in this "02" bent Billiard renditions, but the design actually remains quite slender in its proportions — the bowl tall and narrow, and the shank and stem similarly streamlined in their flowing S-curve out back. Such shaping both reduces the weight of this piece, while also adding sleek elegance to the profile, all with the welcomed capacity for lengthy smoking sessions.
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
