Dunhill: Shell Briar (6203) (2021) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-6209

In stout Group 6 proportions, this classic Billiard from Dunhill presents the English marque's traditional style in palm-filling size sure to please large-pipe enthusiasts. A thoroughly English pipe, the proportions, while large, maintain the balance between bowl height and shank length that characterize the traditional Billiard shape. With a softly rounded heel that curves deftly into a thick round shank and saddle stem, the silhouette is all crisp, clear lines. This pipe emphasizes the quality of its construction and materials more than any particular feature or attention-grabbing finish, keeping an air of dignity and class. Dressed in Dunhill's Shell Briar finish, this pipe offers much to interest the hand as well as the eye.

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.
