Dunhill: County (3208) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-5227
The "08" shape designation on Dunhill's pipe chart denotes both a bent Bulldog and a Rhodesian, the difference dependent upon the shank's shaping. In this Group 3 example a Rhodesian is represented by the round shank, compared to the Bulldog's diamond orientation. I'm especially fond of this compact rendition — the muscular proportions and shortened length hearkening back to certain Rhodesians found across the portfolios of vintage English brands from the early 1900s.
Like the Cumberland finish, Dunhill's County line pairs rich, cumberland stems with delightfully textured sandblasts. Typically, County pieces wear a lighter stain, often falling between the Cumberland and Tanshell hues, and since its introduction in 1986, with only a brief hiatus, the County remains stalwart within Dunhill's portfolio, especially desired by lovers of brindled vulcanite and warm sandblasts.-Truett Smith
