Dunhill: Cumberland (4645) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5332
Dunhill's "45" shape is fondly known as the "Don", a particular Poker variation that boasts plenty of charming appeal. The subtly forward-canted bowl is cylindrical and a bit more stocky, given its Group 4 size, with the chamber breadth of a Pot. It's a fine Sitter and in this rendition is paired to a Churchwarden push-style stem that's the epitome of long, lithe elegance. The shaping of this piece is just splendid, with further refinement seen in the handsome 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."-Angela Robertson
