Dunhill: Shell Briar with Horn (4101) (2017)
Product Number: 002-015-5016
Dunhill's "01" Apple can vary in its degree of plumpness, some being considerably voluptuous, while others are more reserved and slender. This Group 4 rendition of the latter variety, presenting a svelte, soft-lined bowl of subtle plumpness, the heel lifted and pairing well with the bowl's forward cant. Further elevating this pipe is a military mount of genuine horn, the creamy hues of the material contrasting elegantly against the Shell Briar sandblast's dark stain.
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
