Dunhill: Cumberland (2421) (2015) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6305
Dunhill's "21" design is an archetypal rendition of the classic Zulu/Yachtsman shape — essentially a Horn-like take on the bent Dublin, with an elegant downturn to the stem and a forward-canted bowl. Though of smaller, Group 2 size, this particular iteration adds greater muscularity to the shank, making for a solid piece whose relative proportions belie the form's rather compact overall size. Seen here in the warm Cumberland series, it's dressed in a rustic brown sandblast with a cumberland stem to complement.
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."-Truett Smith
