Dunhill: Cumberland (6102) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6333
Dunhill's largest standard size designation, Group 6, presents a bowl and chamber of house pipe dimensions, here represented in the English marque's iconic "02" bent Billiard. Such a Group size thrusts the majority of the visual weight forward toward the bowl — the shank and stem gracefully arcing in an elegant flow that contrasts the bowl's firmness but completes a gestural undercurve in concert with the sweeping heel. A substantial briar in hand, this piece epitomizes Dunhill's classic shaping style but in decidedly bold proportions. It's dressed in the crisp, earthy sandblast of the Cumberland series, keeping the palette classic and boasting the line's iconic brindled stem.
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."-John McElheny
