Dunhill: Cumberland (4422) (2016)
Product Number: 002-015-4549
The second number in Dunhill's numbered shape system refers to the style of stem: Most common are tapered and saddle styles, denoted by "1" and "2," respectively. This rendition of the "22" Poker, however, features the ever-so-slightly bent "4" mouthpiece — most often seen paired to The White Spot's "07" Prince stummel. It turns the often stolid and rigid Poker into a more lithesome and relaxed piece, juxtaposing elegant curvature against the cylindrical and industrial style of the bowl. It still sits well, and the slight bend adds more comfortable balance when clenched.
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
