Dunhill: Cumberland (4924) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6126
A unique piece from Dunhill, this pocket pipe boasts an exaggerated bowl with hefty chamber capacity in an easy to transport package. This pipe maintains the shaping of a paneled Billiard but with bowl-heavy proportions more often seen in a Stack or Poker. The composition is balanced along the ratio of the bowl to the shank and stem together, rather than shank alone, giving this a traditional aesthetic with a twist. The short saddle stem makes this pipe easy to clench in spite of its size. Dressed in Dunhill's Cumberland finish, this pint-sized piece is both practical and handsome.
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
