Dunhill: Cumberland (848) (ODA) (F/T) (2020) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6336
Dunhill's ODA designation signifies the English marque's largest pipes, even larger than their Group 6-sized pieces. It's also somewhat of a rarity to see an "800" series briar offered as a new pipe, due to their limited production numbers as well as how quickly Dunhill collectors and fans of comfort pipes scoop them up. This robust "848" Dublin is quite hearty, the flaring bowl offering an impressive chamber depth. Additionally, it's a fine Sitter, thanks to its flattened underside, and it's seen here dressed in the Cumberland finish.
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
