Dunhill: Shell Briar (5103) (2013) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6451
Likely the most straightforward pipe on the English shape chart, this classic straight "03" Billiard from Dunhill is presented here in a hearty Group 5 size. Wearing the rich, dark sandblast of the Shell Briar finish, highlighting enthralling grain beneath, this piece provides textural and visual stimulation in an elegant, traditional form.
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
