Dunhill: Ring Grain (3107) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6470
Offered in handy Group 3 dimensions, this "07" Dunhill Prince is quite elegant, with a lithe, arrow-straight shank and elongated stem arrangement giving it the princely grace that lovers of the shape seek. This sleekness reinforces the visual presence of the plump bowl, allowing one to fully appreciate the broad, low-set waistline and subtle taper to the rim. Dressed in the English marque's timeless Shell Briar sandblast, the stummel reveals rippling growth rings around the bowl, the showing of grain so fetching and well-orientated that this pipe was awarded Dunhill's prestigious Ring Grain designation.
Having earned the English marque's prestigious Ring Grain designation, this Dunhill piece wears a particularly choice iteration of the Shell Briar sandblast — displaying stunning waves of ring grain across the stummel. 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.-John McElheny
