Dunhill: Shell Brair (3102) (2020) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-5571

The bent Billiard is regarded as one of the most popular and traditional pipe shapes, and Dunhill's "02" renditions defines much of what people expect of the design regarding overall style and proportion standards. Nowhere is that better represented than in the marque's Group 3 size, presenting perfectly balanced and convenient proportions — the bowl large enough to house a respectable chamber, yet not too robust so as to throw off the balance afforded by the bent shank-and-stem combination. The archetypal rendition, this Shell Briar sandblasted example is the perfect testimony to Dunhill's classic English style.

The Shell Briar's addition to the Dunhill catalog was a pivotal moment in pipe smoking history. Before 1917, pipes with sandblasted finishes had never been made, and Alfred Dunhill's innovative mind created arguably the most popular finish for pipes today when he unveiled the Shell Briar. With its dark, reserved color palette and delightful texture, it's no surprise that it's still wildly popular over a century later.
