Dunhill: Cumberland (3134) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-5242
Dunhill's "34" stamp denotes a classic straight Brandy design, well represented by this Group 3 example's steadily tapering bowl. That said, this is a slightly unique rendition from the English marque: The shank-and-stem combination is that of a Canadian, being oval of cross section, elongated through the shank, and abbreviated of tapered mouthpiece. Such a combination makes this an appealing outlier among other "34" renditions, made all the more enticing by the earth tones of the Cumberland finish.
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
