Dunhill: Cumberland (3111) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6119
Common in larger sizes, but particularly suited to Group 3, Dunhill's Lovat shape offers a deep chamber in comfortable and easy to carry package. This pipe features a muscular round shank set low at the bowl and flattened on the bottom, allowing the pipe to sit upright for extra versatility. With a softly defined heel and slight taper toward the rim, this piece is shaped in the archetypal English style that maintains the standard for shape charts to this day. The pipe's saddle stem is rendered in attractive brindled vulcanite that matches the deep tones of the stummel's Cumberland finish. Dressed in a sandblast that reveals excellent grain orientation and stained in deep burgundy and chestnut, this expertly crafted pipe is a pleasure to look at as well as to hold.
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."-Gabriel Bass
