Dunhill: Shell Briar (2113) (2016) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6405
This "13" bent Apple from Dunhill is presented in lithe Group 2 size, making for a surprisingly pocket-friendly piece from the storied English marque. However, the small size does nothing to hide the pipe's beauty, which Dunhill has dressed in their popular Shell Briar finish and further accentuated with a luxurious jet-black stem. That nimble vulcanite stem turns downward and flares to a broad fishtail to promote comfortable smoking sessions.
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.--Davin Hylton
