Dunhill: Cumberland Quaint Bent Dublin (4) (2018) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5846
Dunhill's Quaint series showcases designs that don't fit into the English marque's standard shape chart. These more individualized shapes fall within a broad range, though, in how non-traditional they are. This Quaint Dublin design is something of a hybrid of the Zulu and Dublin shapes, offering an easy curve on the end of which sits a slightly canted Dublin bowl. The heel is a touch firmer in profile thanks to the flattened nomenclature panel along the heel, and it's all dressed in the Cumberland line's rustic sandblast.
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
