Dunhill: Cumberland Quaint Dublin (4) (2018) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5334
Part of Dunhill's Quaint line of pipes, this Dublin Sitter is a fine example of what the English marque produces when they deviate from their standard shape chart designs. A Group 4 offering, it displays a substantial bowl with a concave aspect to its flaring sides, paired to a low-set transition and shank. It looks quite sleek sitting on a desk, with a lot of implied momentum like an idling sports car, and the rippling Cumberland sandblast and namesake stem feel quite luxurious.
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."- Joel Balyeat
