Dunhill: Cumberland (4204) (2018) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5210
A traditional, masculine design, Dunhill's "04" straight Bulldog is rendered here in Group 4 size, though it is remarkably lightweight and compact. A smooth, tapering rim sits atop a soft ridgeline, the forward-urging bowl resting on a pronounced heel, paired to the form's characteristic, crisply lined diamond shank. The stummel is dressed in the English marque's iconic Cumberland finish, deep chestnut sandblast matching the saddle stem made from the brindled vulcanite which the finish denotes, making for a ruggedly elegant pipe that is undeniably handsome.
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."-John McElheny
