Dunhill: Cumberland (4117) (2018) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-4492
Displaying the squat, low-set demeanor of Dunhill's classic "17" Bulldog shape, this Group 4 rendition presents a wider disposition compared to the English marque's other "04" Bulldog design. The design here trades its conventional beadlines for a softer ridge to demarcate the rim's taper, as seen here. That said, the taper is minimal as the "17" prioritizes breadth over height, with Pot-like chamber dimensions and a substantive in-hand posture.
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
