Dunhill: Ring Grain (3109) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-4987
This Dunhill "09" Canadian in Group 3 size benefits from a long, sleek, and streamlined form that still remains impressively lightweight. As such, it's a pipe that makes a statement while being comfortably clenched and maintaining the English brand's iconic, industry-defining shaping style. Numerous other makers have looked to Dunhill as the standard bearer of traditional proportions and shaping, and that classic style is on display in this County piece, finished in a ruddy sandblast.
Having earned the English marque's prestigious Ring Grain designation, this Dunhill piece wears a particularly choice iteration of the Shell Briar sandblast — displaying stunning waves of ring grain across the stummel. 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.-Truett Smith
