Dunhill: Cumberland with Silver (3210) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6120
On Dunhill's standard shape chart, the "10" typically refers to Liverpool, but it can also denote a lithe Bing's Billiard, like this particular offering. Presented in handy Group 3 size, this piece features a pert, softly rounded bowl that stands at the fore of an elongated shank and an equally lengthy saddle stem. It's a sleek, streamlined shape that cuts an impressive if slender profile, and it boasts a lightweight in-hand presence. The rustic Cumberland sandblast dresses the stummel and accentuates the natural grain orientation of the briar, while a brindled vulcanite mouthpiece complements the stummel's hues and a sterling silver accent provides a dose of flash to the overall composition.
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."--Davin Hylton
