Dunhill: Shell Briar (4407) (2017)
Product Number: 002-015-4573
Arguably one of Dunhill's most elegant and recognizable designs, the "07" Prince shape is crafted in either bent or straight form, the former being the case in this Group 4 rendition. With the classically squat bowl paired to an abbreviated shank and softly downturned stem, this piece exudes refinement and is presented in the English marque's Shell Briar sandblast.
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.-Angela Robertson
