Dunhill: Cumberland (2105) (2019) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6302
This "05" from Dunhill is a classic take on the Dublin design, with the flared rim and subtle taper resulting in a firm heel. The bowl sits at the front of an arrow-straight shank and stem arrangement that anchors most of the visual weight up front with sleek, low-slung lines. In Group 2 size, this is a petite piece of briar, boasting a lightweight disposition in hand that lends itself well to gesticulation and is perfectly suited for clenching between the teeth. It wears the deep stain and sandblast of the iconic Cumberland finish, highlighting some handsome grain about the stummel, complemented in color by the tapered stem of brindled vulcanite.
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
