Dunhill: Shell Briar (3421) (2017) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-5875

The gestural, sinuous shaping of Dunhill's "21" Zulu design ensures its elegant aesthetic, especially given its Group 3 size, as in this handsome rendition. The forward-leaning bowl and Prince-like downturned stem make for a striking profile, and it's dressed in the marque's dark, grain-defining Shell Briar sandblast, save for the smooth rim, for a rather formal color palette.

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.
