Dunhill: Shell Briar Quaint Pickaxe with Silver (4) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-4632

The Pickaxe isn't featured on Dunhill's standard shape chart. That's why the English marque created the Quaint line — a series exclusively reserved for non-standard forms. Here, the sharp-heeled, angular shape is rendered in Group 4 size, the bowl tall and slender in its gradual, upward flare toward the suddenly tapered rim. It's presented here in the Shell Briar's dark sandblast with sterling silver accent.

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.
