Dunhill: Chestnut with Silver (6401) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-4762
Usually, Dunhill's "01" shape is a classic straight Apple, and while the stummel of this pipe adheres to that traditional form, it's fitted to a slightly bent stem — as designated by the "4" in the shape stamp. We've seen such renditions of the "01" before, and they're typically on the larger end of the English marque's size spectrum, with this one representing Group 6 proportions and Dunhill's largest standard size. That size makes for a palm-filling pipe that suits the robust curves of the Apple shape well, while the slightly bent stem balances the form out for a more comfortable smoking posture. It's found here in the dark palette of the Chestnut line, with the addition of a slender, sterling silver accent band for elegant flash.
A sibling to the Cumberland, Dunhill's Chestnut finish was inaugurated in 1983 to commemorate the closing of the Cumberland Rd. warehouse for which the Cumberland finish was named. Like the Cumberland, pipes in the Chestnut line wear the same dark, smoky stain and are fitted to stems of cumberland but feature a silky smooth, glossy finish compared to the Cumberland's rugged sandblast.-Truett Smith
