Dunhill: Cumberland (5133) (2018) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5214
Often times, Dunhill's "33" design merges elements of the bent Brandy with those of the Volcano, the base often wide set and demarcated by a ridgeline that leads to a more flattened heel. In this hearty, Group-5 rendition, that flattened heel is consistent; however, the bowl presents a more upright, Billiard-like posture, supported by the upturned shank and elegantly bent stem. It's dressed here in the rustic sandblast of the Cumberland series, the color palette made consistent thanks to the line's namesake stem of brindled vulcanite.
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."-Truett Smith
