Dunhill: Cumberland (3104) (2021) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6592
A shape-chart standard pipe from Dunhill, this "04" Bulldog, and its Group 3 size, epitomize the British tradition of prioritizing simplicity and balanced proportions. The bowl forgoes the Bulldog's beadlines, rather it chooses to leave the broad, vertically-oriented, growth rings unblemished as they wrap around the bowl. The diamond shank joins to a cumberland stem, which smoothly tapers to a sizeable bit.
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."--Zach Podl
