Dunhill: Shell Briar with Horn (3122) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-4569
The primary difference between Dunhill's "22" Poker and those of many other makers and marques is the low orientation of the shank, which is at table level when the pipe rests upright, here accented by a flaring, dual-toned horn mount that matches the slight flare of the bowl. Of course, being Dunhill, the differences don't end there: superior engineering, a deftly-executed classic sandblast, a beautiful horn shank extension, and an arrow-straight, push-style mouthpiece.
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.- Chuck Stanion
