Dunhill: Cumberland (4122) (2018) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5329
While Dunhill's "22" Poker is incredibly traditional, maintaining the classic elements of cylindrical bowl and flattened heel, it differs from many other pipe makers' renditions in that the transition is not significantly raised above the heel. It still sits sturdily upright, but draws more focus to the bowl for a firm, stolid presence. That's especially so in the case of this tall, Group 4 offering dressed in the rustic palette of the Cumberland line.
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
