Dunhill: Cumberland (6401) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-4697
Dunhill's largest standard size designation, Group 6, presents a bowl and chamber of house pipe dimensions, here represented in the English marque's "01" Apple. This particular example is a bent Apple, denoted by the "4" in its shape code and has primarily been a design reserved for larger Group 5 and 6 renditions according to our archives. The substantial, forward urging bowl fills the palm effortlessly while the gracefully arching mouthpiece lends the shape an elegant, unique silhouette. This impressive piece is further commended by handsome, sandblasted grain patterns in the Cumberland line's warm stain.
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."- Jeffery Sitts
