Dunhill: Shell Briar (5110) (2019) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5744
This Liverpool from Dunhill displays a surprisingly lightweight feel in hand, despite offering plenty of briar in its Group 5 sizing. Sleek of profile and rendered in a versatile length, this piece has so much to admire, from its firmly right angled heel to its dressy palette and crisp sandblast. This is one pipe you'll find yourself reaching for again and again.
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.-Truett Smith
